From Detroit, Michigan and currently working on my MFA at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia.
"All that is solid melts into air." (Karl Marx)
Artists today are coping with a situation "in which we seem increasingly incapable of fashioning representations of our own current experience." This expressive conundrum currently lies at the root of my interest in making visual art. There is a great challenge in attempting to represent that which is unrepresentable.
In my paintings and drawings I am interested in joining plasticity, visuality and imagination with my 'non-art' interests (some of which are cultural theory, anthropology, the history of modern technology, Marxist economic theory, and astronomy.) This leads to mimetic abstractions, environments that are at once flat and dimensional, and images that are familiar but unnameable.
