My primary goal in making art is imagining and actualizing that which has never existed through the consideration and re-presentation of that which is often forgotten or disregarded. The imagery incorporated is sourced from broadsheets, text books, obscure internet content, discarded receipts, and other forms of detritus. These images often serve as primary host or armature from which other visual forms mutate and propagate. The combination creates works that defy a linear interpretation, but instead, afford a syntax that is unique to itself.

I want to make art that engages, challenges, and survives—the successful work sustains itself well beyond a viewing experience.
