dc.description.abstractWithin moments of suffering, beauty emerges and manifests itself into forms that we do not fully recognize. We become willful, dependant, and most of all the accepting of our human frailty. I choose to present portraits that represent this idea of suffering as being human and unique. I do not seek to overwhelm my viewer with sadness and despair, but rather to open my viewer's eyes to what suffering may reveal. As a society, we are generally numb to the tragedy that may befall others. Some apply an invisible shield and a mask of glamour to conceal what they believe may resemble suffering and defeat. Our natural inclination is to present to each other an image of our own perfection, as stable and immortal beings. In reality, we analyze ourselves and recognize natures defeat every day when we look in the mirror, Great measure is taken to conceal any sign of aging, stress personal ailments, and the inevitable death. My models represent this struggle with life, yet without any concealment. Their troubles are laid before the viewers, as human as they may be.en_US
