Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

My latest work an on-going series of assemblages. These are constructed using archival pigment printed images, collected and saved objects, hardware, textiles, acrylic and enamel paints. I have felt a strong draw toward the absurd in the creation of this work, likely a result of today’s changing cultural landscape.

In combining objects, colors, textures, backgrounds, and shapes within my assemblages, I continually learn how things are not inherently one way or another but a complex combination of many ideas and ideals.
