The Beary Collection will never be completed. It is a body of work that runs parallel to my art practice. It helps guide the other collections and is the core of my work. This collections ranges in media and expresses it self in many different ways. I use cartoon animals specifically bears to symbolize an emotional state. I am inspired by Care Bears/teddy bears because to me they represent innocence, comfort, and the beginning. To me, Care Bears are rooted in identity and empathy, some of my most important values. Values I think the modern world could use more of.
"You Broke It" is a painting for the inner child. I don't think people realize the damage we leave behind when we hurt others. I think we also over complicate things, I know i do. I constantly look for answers and reasons. At the end of the day, when we are hurt, we just want someone to recognize the damage and take accountability.
