Artist Statement

My work engages the fertile ground of our culturally-constructed world, a world that lies outside of our biological imperative but that is central to who we are, how we operate, and to what our aspirations connect with. It is here that lives our perceptions, deceptions, and biases, and yet it is also the space that most fully defines our human condition. Because this world lies outside of defensible reality, it is the negotiated space for cultural and social politics.

Within this milieu, my work provokes through both content and its representation, a conceptual framework that operates parallel to how we construct reality and the perception of that reality. Most recently, my work engages the ideas around identity politics, who constructs them and who are the victims of this classification and value-laden commodification.
