About

Reality may be regarded as wholly unacceptable. (At present, and as far back as we can see into the past, it takes the form of an unbroken string of cruelties. It pains, maltreats, and kills us. It is unjust, pitiless, pointless, and hopeless. We are at its mercy, and we are it.) 

"Gerhard Richter: October 18, 1977" By Robert Storr

 

My practice explores the human condition and our capacity for atrocity, specifically terrorism. A key component to my work is the subtle narratives contained within each painting, often using reflection and text to convey a deeper meaning. 

I use a number of decisive concepts to inform my practice. These include the banality of evil and Terror Management Theory. In particular the knowledge that worldviews are a means to surviving the knowledge of horror that is our own inevitable death. I believe it is this awareness of my own mortality that drives me to respond to terrorism, in order to leave something behind. For me that something is a reflection of my conscience, an expression of my moral compass, on a subject that depicts a constant of human nature.
