anxiety

The slippery quality of emotional intelligence is ever shifting. As we approach understanding, new experiences add fresh layers of complexity. The narratives I construct address uncomfortable social interactions and the intensity of the feeling born out of them. I am referencing the pain and discomfort of emotional limbo through facial expressions, physical deformities and spatial relationships. In the pieces I create the figures are frozen in the moment of emotional intensity, caught in a problem born out of social conflict. There is no resolution, so they contemplating there lost states.
