Artist Statement

My body of work focuses on the duality of meaning in reclaimed objects and images. The paintings, drawings, and installation work are research oriented-projects informed by various interrelated sources including cultural history, architecture, language, and literature. The work attempts to seduce the viewer into places that are once eerily familiar yet ineluctably foreign. It wants to convey a sense of nostalgia based on memories that bespeak a culture of reinvention and banal planes of reflections. These references are conveyed through the specific and repetitive use of images, objects, textual language, as well as the use of traditional and non-traditional materials.
