Artist Statement

Media and Art exert powerful influences over all of us through continuous, evolving processes of reflection and creation.  They shape our hopes and fears, our notions of beauty and ugliness, our ideas about the primitive and the civilized, our conceptions of the honorable and the shameful.  My work uses juxtaposed images to comment on the role the media plays in the shaping of our complex lives, identities, and consciousness.  Each collage is hand-manipulated with the goal of transformation as a way of commenting on, satirizing or criticizing the source material.
