Artist Statement

MY WORK EXPLORES THE CURRENT AND PAST ISSUES FACED WITHIN AMERICAN SOCIETY. I DELVE INTO MY OWN, CONTINUING ATTEMPT TO CONTEMPLATE THEM AND THE QUESTIONS SURROUNDING GROWTH AND EVOLUTION. WITH INFLUENCES AS DIVERSE AS KEMANG WA LEHULERE AND DANIEL ARSHAM, DISCUSSIONS ARE CREATED FROM BOTH OPAQUE AND TRANSPARENT INTERPRETATIONS.

 

SINCE I WAS A CHILD I HAVE BEEN FASCINATED BY THE IDEALS AND DREAMS AMERICA PRESENTS TO THE WORLD AND ITS OWN PEOPLE. WHAT STARTS AS HOPE SOON BECOMES CORRUPTED INTO A DISCORD OF MYTHS AND BELIEFS CONFUSED WITH FACTS. LEFT WITH A SENSE OF DREAD, A NEW UNDERSTANDING IS INEVITABLE IN THE SEARCH OF PROGRESSION.

 

AS FLASHING CONFLICTS BECOME CLARIFIED THROUGH EMERGENT AND PERSONAL PRACTICE, THE VIEWER IS LEFT WITH AN INSIGHT INTO OUTPOSTS OF OUR CONDITION AND HOPEFULLY THEIR OWN QUESTIONS, AND THE DRIVE TO DISCOVER FURTHER TRUTHS.

About Me

Born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in San Diego, California my art career began as I pursued a development in Graphic Design in High School and continuing in my years at Community College. There I became introduced into the world of physical Three Dimensional creation and grew into an undying passion for the style of creating that pushed me forward into pursuing my undergraduate in London.

Merging what I have learned from both fields of study I attempt to create my voice and continue learning and developing as in artist in any ways that I can.
