Artist Statement



I’m a sculptor that makes use of photography, drawing and painting. My practice vacillates between the use of appropriated images and constructed objects for their physicality and its relationship to space and the illusionary potential of the flat surface. I use imagery from popular culture while referencing to our politic climate, aesthetically I employ minimalism, and aspects of architecture and design. I use my studio practice as a malleable medium, as a site of contemplation, challenge and inspiration. As David Harvey describes "at times of crisis, the irrationality of capitalism becomes plain for all to see," My work act as a crystallization of these crisis’s a magnifying glass of these irrationalities through the manipulation of commercial culture
