Artist Statement

I work in a variety of different media including collage, video, sculpture and drawing. My practice takes a critical view of how we as human beings are influenced by the aesthetic language of mass production and the shifting social characterizations in the media that are influenced by political and economical markets. In my recent work I have been creating large and small scale collages using found and recycled advertisement materials, scrambling the graphics to reroute their content entirely. Using a set of rules whereby I plunder the ads for their colors and shapes— destroying all original messages—I use the remains to produce abstract collages/paintings. In using this set of rules my aim is to remove any sort of agenda in the resulting visuals.
