Artist’s Statement

Daily life is so image rich as we’re constantly bombarded by a completely mediated culture. Modern mass media produces streams of imagery all competing for our attention, with messages that often have conflicting associations and meanings attached. My art isn’t a direct critique of our mediated culture. I seek to explore and appropriate this data rich environment as raw material to create art that has tension yet familiarity as it speaks through the most influential language of our time. Using collage, I create art that explores the subject, aesthetic, pace and ultimately sense of place we’ve created through the many artifices of mass media. My art is a diary, a daily confessional of a modern day consumer.
