Artist Statement

My current body of work stems from our cultural obsession with collectibles, or more specifically aspects of Americana, through the creation of formal art making. My intent is to create a familiarity with the objects that I create without being overly representational through the deletion of specific parts, form, or particular visual cues. In doing so I seek to circumvent an immediate understanding by creating an investigation that elicits a sense of nostalgia, while at the same time creating a new perspective to an otherwise familiar object.
