Artist Statement
I am an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores issues of value and visibility through an image centered art practice.  By combining objects and ideas of disparate, often adversarial, intellectual, monetary, and historical worth, I examine the ways that contemporary culture tends to conflate fact/fiction, need/desire, nature/technology.  My work is driven by a need to investigate how contradictory histories; cultural practices, knowledge bases and philosophies converge to inform the greater American culture and me.
