Resume

Artist Statement:

My stylized, event-driven paintings depict characters and situations in an unrealistic world of raster dots and bright colors: my depiction of a media controlled life in an urban world. The characters that I paint are inspired by news stories of damaged personalities and evolve into different versions of myself, male or female, observing, thinking, and processing my everyday experiences. I use the iconic cartoon imagery of past decades originally meant to depict a good, clean American lifestyle and juxtapose that innocence against the urban grittiness of the present day.  The dot grid format in my work conveys the impression of reproduction and simulation, further enhancing my manipulation of reality. My paintings act as an allegory for the intense media manipulation of news and images constantly bombarded into my consciousness. The  proximity of this information penetrates and informs my world serving as inspiration for my work. As an artist living in the Bronx, the city has also become an essential part of my visual lexicon.
