Statement:

 

I create conceptually driven work comprised of sculpture, video, drawing and digital prints. the work  reflects upon iconic cultural and societal events or moments that have influenced major shifts in our collective consciousness, but now may be near the point of forgetting.

 

For each exhibition, I combine and arrange multiple elements and mediums, which invoke visual and cognitive signs, or “clues”, that elicit a (sub)conscious nostalgia, building multiple layers of information to be considered and processed.

 

Both expressed and implied references to pop culture, radical politics, art history and the dark alleys of society, all the while drawing upon lived personal experience, suggest connections and idiosyncrasies while exposing them as uncanny precursors to present-day realities.
