Social commentary has been an interest of mine for quite some time. Whether it be movies, books, music or other artistic media, all have a resounding effect on my work. The messages in my paintings are visual metaphors for my experiences in modern life. All of my work has social messages woven into the concept and visual structure of the images.
Dichotomies are especially important to the foundation of my work. Old and new, beautiful and ugly or good and evil all get fused physically and conceptually in my pieces.
The process in which I create my art is much like developing a riddle... start with the answer and work backwards. I begin with the final product then figure out how to make it happen. I take elements I've drawn, sculpted or photographed and scan them into the computer. Once in the computer, I bring them all together and merge them into one cohesive image.
