Artist Statement
My work is an exercise in enigmatic associations and collective stream of consciousness. I deconstruct and reconstruct iconographic relationships while drawing on historical and contemporary visual references. This rhizomatic approach allows me the flexibility to reframe the visual references in an inuitive and personal manner. What develops is a contexutal ambiguity that comes together in unexpected ways to shape the visual experience. This experience will hopefully queue the viewer to a chronicle that has yet to be interperted.
