A theme of his work is the need to express indignation with the challenging influences that society imposes on the human experience, as well as the journey of self-growth in becoming our fullest version of self. The work tends to include idealized human forms that serves as an icon, a representation of human potential that ultimately conflicts with societal pressures and limitations. The beauty, grace, and strength within the human form is used as a metaphor for the rebirth or rethinking of society. In using this motif, his goal is that the emotional expression of the work is not overpowering, but subtle imagery with the intent that it can leave the viewer with a more open and accepting frame of mind. The intent is to be provocative and haunting in symbolism with the purpose to influence people to rethink their connection to humanity in a positive way. Viewing the work, there is a visual interlude between encompassing figures and the abstraction of forms. Figures peering out from the surface in juxtaposition to the abstract forms from which they emerge are woven into the piece with a harmonious sense of movement.
