Statement

Drawing as much from the forefront of contemporary Pop culture as the bowels of forgotten history, my work provides a close examination of our society’s excessive infatuation with glamour, fortune, and fame. Building upon the dialogue begun by the Pop artists, I seek to underscore the superficiality of celebrity status in the face of current trends of cultural, economic, and environmental decay. Utilizing the accessibility and ease of execution offered by contemporary strategies of appropriation, my latest works appear muddy and garbled, mimicking the messy culture which they represent. Whether silk-screened portraits of celebrities long forgotten or sculptural remnants of abandoned muscle cars, my aesthetic of damage and tarnish serves to pay homage to the countless icons that have been lost in the depths of time.
