Statement

Using methods of constructing and deconstructing, I am constantly re-using and re-purposing my own artwork.  One series literally leads to another, where previous series of works are cut, torn and sewn or woven back together again into new series of works, which may again be reconstructed into yet another art form.  The past always present in the current and future works, they tell a story of my progression as an Artist, and question the finality of Art.

I often use word play, theatrics and general political topics as a way to communicate opinions that ultimately define an observation about the Art world itself.  Painting as a medium, having taken the largest “beating” so to speak from the critical art world has been my primary focus of material, be it acrylic, oil or watercolor on either paper or canvas.  I “kill” my traditionally framed paintings by cutting and tearing them apart, then mend them together by thread, a series of knots or weaving them together again giving them new life as a different form.
