Statement, Bio & History

Artist Statement
I am forever fascinated by the power of myth. I’m interested in myth as an unproved or false collective belief often used to justify a social norm. Through language‚ images and ideas‚ I explore myth’s influence on conscious and unconscious behaviors‚ attitudes and desires. Masculinity‚ romance‚ “the artist” and “the American Dream‚” including: home ownership‚ marriage‚ escapism‚ celebrity and self-reliance‚ are areas I investigate to reveal the effects and consequences of mythical thinking.
