Statement

Advancements in technology have worked as a catalyst for the spread and accessibility of information. Through the continuous stimuli of mass communication and abundance of information, we are exposed to an overwhelming amount of graphic tragedy across the world seemingly without a filter. Current events are glossed over, quickly replaced and summarily forgotten. 

     My painted assemblages present a way to memorialize and contemplate past events outside of the usual context of current events and the world at large. Sifting through print media and scanning through digital archives to find images to paint in a representational manner may seem redundant, but I believe painting a photograph preserves and honors the selected image. I counter the rapid-fire nature of mass communication by dedicating the time necessary to paint images and conditions that have fallen out of relevancy in the public eye. The painting's events are analyzed and restaged in our mind, while the constructed sculptural elements lend the work a physical charge, an extension of sensation and ideas pushed out into the actual dimensional space of the viewer.

     Through this work I assert that these events and situations they portray are still relevant and poignant to current events and act as reminders that success and failure may often be found in the experiences of our collective past.
