Artist Statement
My drawings function as personal interpretations of political or commercial propaganda.  I begin with imagery found on postage stamps or printed advertisements and, using the visual logic and graphic language of the image, I attempt to tease out a larger framework from which to consider it.  Finished pieces often incorporate printed matter and cultural detritus, which gives them an immediate and tactile connection to the world of objects.

I am particularly interested in the postage stamp as a geographical artifact, and through my drawing process I attempt to learn something about a place by studying its official imagery and then creating a world beyond the borders of its fragmentary scenes.  The finished drawings and paintings are a record of this futile study; they are a dialogue between the printed and the drawn, the official and the personal, the real and the imaginary.
