Artist Statement


A mixed media artist, I like to work with ideas first and then translate them through media that speaks it most clearly. I believe that not all ideas can be translated through paint as effectively and some are best in paint-it just depends. I like to think of my work as recontextualizations-a rearrangement of ordinary or recognizable concepts in out of the ordinary forms. I tend to work in collisions of past and present; juxtaposing historical or ancient traditional ideas against contemporary culture in a way that is humorous while being harshly critical of society and culture.
