Through the practice of deconstructing and reassembling materials, I create a complex narrative capable of containing my internal struggle to process thoughts, experiences, and emotions. The process of transposing thoughts to drawings is much like translating from one language into another, it rarely retaining the original meaning. Through a mix of materials of found objects and constructed information I structure my overstimulation onto the art, weaving A cathartic narrative of a family life, cultural critique, cynical environmentalism and political decline. This cross-pollution of cultural references and personal complexities overlap to create an archive of the individual existence that both relates and juxtaposes being and not being within context of place.

Do me a favor and think about power structures and how concentration of wealth equals concentration of power and how it can be passed from one generation to the next mutating into this deformed run on sentence.
