i am inspired by the pivotal social and political events that have shaped our world. i make work that is a conceptually driven investigation of these ideas and their impact upon everyday life.the work is presented in installations that combine multiple individual pieces (sculpture, video, photography, painting, drawing), arranged within the proscribed space to form provocative visual and intellectual layers.some pieces may be revisited and revised within a new exhibitiion. the original subtext is brought into the mix and then reacts to the new arrangement.
the pieces employ suggestive titles and visual references, (rock and roll song lyrics, sexual inuendo, art history, industrial design), which draw upon sub/conscious nostalgia as a means of stimulating multiple readings. positioning the work within this cognitive framework allows for it to reflect on current and historical events from several different perspectives.
