Artist’s Statement:

The current series of paintings negotiates the bleak world of an eating disorder, which reemerged recently in my life. Food in this universe is remote, elusive and ultimately unpalatable. The throes of restriction obscure day to day life, imbuing it with a sense of unreality. As if floating in a vacuum, time begins to warp and negative space creeps to the forefront—intervals between eating. Find more of his work at
