Artist Statement:

I arrange objects into compositions that make them stand free from their familiar frame of reference.  Many objects awaken feelings of disgust as they can be reminders of an unhealthy lifestyle choice or, serious environmentally concerns or mere superficiality.  These very objects can also be pleasurable, even useful in a fleeting way.  This dissonance is hard to deal with.  It’s through painting that i am able to voice these anxieties, and reveal the absurdities of these competing values.
