The Gap Series
In 2010 I kept doodling and drawing shapes that had a gap in them. This consumed me and I began to create three dimensional work based on my sketches. While working on this sculpture I realized that the shapes represented people in my life that didn't belong any more for one reason or another. I served 4 years in the military, upon my return I found that everything and everyone had changed, including myself. I had a very difficult time coping and adjusting back to life as a civilian, especially because I lost nearly everything I thought was waiting for me. This work allowed me to see and understand what I had been feeling since 2007, it also allowed me to deal with and get over it.
