Artist Statement
I improvise with mundane materials and images, searching for signifying and self reflective sources to layer upon. Materiality is essential to realize my ideas, subordinating form to process. I freely misapply traditional artistic methods of painting, photography, and sculpture by incorporating banal materials, obliterated or overexposed images culled from the internet, and deconstructed forms to merge and support one another. Strategies of mimicry and abstraction bring into question truth and transformation by making apparent the phenomenological traces of tape, images, and imposed gesture. These accumulations coalesce object, image, and narrative into physical space.
