Artist Statement
My work visualizes the impact of intimate, first-hand experiences. It is a collision between the immediate and the mythic, revealing unexpected aspects of situations often experienced or observed. I present viewers with choices and then let them resolve their own personal reactions, which may be troubling. All of this occurs under an exuberant veneer of color, line, and pattern; but underneath lurk elements of irony and humor. In my practice I strive to capture the fleeting moment, as if in a frozen, cinematic frame that unexpectedly exposes the emotional fault lines of what is usually thought of as normal life.
