Artist Statement:

I am narrating a backwards system, a non-functioning system, in which the symptoms of success are illusory. When glimpsed through an alternate lens one finds that man’s creations appear nonsensical: under the guise of stability, comprehension and palatability, lie illogical, disposable spaces. I create environments in paint and collage that respond to these illusions of functionality and purpose by focusing on their aesthetic, their form.

I construct mixed-media paintings of unstable landscapes. I forge space by emphasizing the impermanence of architecture and object. In these environments one detects the degradation: traces of de-evolution and the post-industrial.
