Statement

My work embraces hedonism. I want it to appeal to our most basic human emotions through lurid visual cues and a visceral manipulation of materials. I try to elicit lewd thoughts with only paint strokes and flashes of teeth. Oil painting is an ostentatious pursuit, which I combine with vulgar party deco and occasionally raw video footage to indulge my cravings for immoderate experiences.
