Artist Statement

Bush Erased is a yearlong project cutting George W. Bush out of the front section of The New York Times following his second inauguration. The remains are saved in a ziploc bag. The piece takes the form of a book, or an installation of 250 newspaper pages. 

Paintings of patterns found in front page photographs from The New York Times question established patterns of historical and visual perception.
