I want my audience to experience images and video that can be understood within the context of similar experiences that might have occurred within their own lives. As individuals we share so much in common with other people, but we are isolated within our own minds. There is a disconnectedness created between every individual and their surrounding universe that is fundamentally integrated through that person’s ability to accept sensory information and respond with language.
I pattern my work after artists such as John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, Chris Burden and others who incorporate humor, antagonism, and absurdity in their work. Through the use of still photography, video, and sound, I address issues as sexuality, consumption, mass-media, and physical appearance.
