Artist Statement
My pictures of mounds, stacks, piles, heaps, and staged arrangements contain a lexicon of cuttings, discards, statuary, bodies, edibles, and taxidermy.   These piles convey an interest in classical notions of Vanitas still life and cornucopia as well as more contemporary notions of repetitive labor and mark-making.  I am interested in investigating pictorial cliché and convention loosely within the structure of a classical still life.  Obsession with food, iconic beauty, and the grotesque or monstrous all feature in these amalgamations and cornucopia.  The accumulation, hoarding, of such imagery mirrors personal disorder and disaffection.
