Artist Statement

Using ordinary materials such as magazine spreads and advertisements, I create work that reflects the expectations and desires of contemporary consumer culture. My interests lie in the collapse of inflated expectation and how visual media guides society’s manufactured view of self-esteem. Working primarily in sculpture and collage I accumulate, repeat and alter mass-produced and overlooked imagery, mainly of the figure. These distorted figural works aim to reveal the ways in which we identify with and develop self-assertive ambition from popular images by interrupting that identification.

Recently my attention has focused on fashion models in high-gloss editorials, the unrestrained masculinity of fitness magazines, and the idol worship surrounding teen heartthrobs.
