Statement




Using ink, graphite, oil paint and silk screened elements I create drawings of abstracted landscapes. Nature and man made debris organically meld to form scenes that reference the calm of the aftermath. I'm interested in the visual overabundance we're surrounded by; the psychotic reality of a visual culture that has lost all coherence. Drawing from the wealth of printed media that fills our world: electronics catalogues, Jahova witness brochures, touristic city souvenir booklets, etc. I attempt to create compositions that both reference depictions from a familiar fable and a world of abstracted groupings that seem to grow organically, reproductively. I'm interested in a time line or narrative unfolding within a work. Piles of speakers, car parts, mattresses, lumber, coffins, vegetables, etc. sprawl out and compete with deteriorating architecture and mountain-scapes.
