Artist Statement
My current work makes visible the interplay between the tangible world of objects and people and the traumas that disrupt it. I seek to construct a narrative of self amidst the shattered fragments. Sunlit color and whimsical composition collide with harsher elements such as ruptured steel and concrete. 
To construct the work I use primarily high-gloss fashion magazines. I tear out images of young men and women that have been portrayed as representations of rivalry, illusion and desire. Cutting them into small pieces, I use their parts to recreate a new whole that attempts to reclaim my own desire and define my underlying sense of the world.

The reconfigured ephemera reconcile observations of suffering and anxiety with a transcendent calm, the possibility of redemption.
