Portfolio > Saudade

I am forever falling in love. It's my favorite hobby. I become infatuated with people, with places, with objects, with moments in time, with literary passages, movies, songs and works of art. When someone or something speaks to me I attach hard; I tend to fixate and revisit what speaks to me on a regular basis. The pieces in this show bring together some of my obsessions and explore the notion of nostalgia and various forms of missingness - for things both lost and things I maybe never had to begin with.
