The goal with my current body of work is to show action, impact, and damage to the human body in contact sports. I've decided to reflect this idea through the sport of boxing, which is personal to me, as I box as a hobby and ran MICA’s boxing club before I graduated. I'm expressing this thought through a sustained series of paintings and sketches, telling a story of a boxing match. Each painting shows an action of the body being hit by a punch, and shows the force and impact to the body. Combatants in the paintings will get more bruised and damaged as the fight progresses, until this story reaches its ending with the knockout punch. Each painting also shows the effect of motion, of how the punch is being thrown to the body, and how the body reacts. Along with painting, I've been doing a continuous study of boxing sketches. They’re small paintings/pastel drawings —100 of them— of different moments from boxing matches, which function as one, multi panel painting/drawing.
