Artist Statement

    With my recent bodies of work, I have been attempting to catch small moments of life in paint. I work from found imagery, as well as self-produced imagery and fuse the images together to create spaces. These are where the moments occur. The concepts, which I touch upon, tend to be social and political. The works often have a dark spin to them, yet I feel there is usually some sense of beauty, hope, humor, or promise involved. I try to explore certain dynamics of life such as: beauty within horror, light within dark, calm within tension, quiet within chaos, or hope within despair. I don’t consider the works to be autobiographical, though my experiences and opinions do play a great part in their shaping. I find satisfaction in leaving most pieces without obvious, definite conclusions. I hope for the ideas in each piece to stretch out beyond my intended scope.
