Artist Statement

My work explores the fleeting nature of memory through painting and sculpture.  I am interested in personal and shared cultural memory; the repetition and meditation involved in nostalgic remembering and partial truth recalled as authentic experience.  The sources for my work come from film, photography, video clips, interior design brochures, album covers and fragments of borrowed visual culture from endless Internet searches.  The resulting work flips between materials, genres and styles, to create pieces, which are simultaneously alluring, yet at odds with popular ideas of “good taste”.
