  • Artist Statement

    i paint and create assemblage pieces that deal with my relationship with society. i think we live in a very interesting time period with the introduction to mass communications, digital information and the social media. my recent work deals with the combination of logos and icons of the internet and the 'selfie.' i paint myself from my own images taken from instagram and facebook. i use an expressionist approach because i believe in trying to capture the emotional from each piece. we, as a society, also have a developed a short attention span for looking at images. the art is full of words, numbers, logos, images, bones, toy guns, and the color of plastic because that is what i'm surrounded and familiar with in my everyday life. art is the reflection of society, and this is my world.
