Artist Statement:

My work springs from the fusion of pop culture, abstraction, and political iconography. Though critical in spirit, my paintings incorporate imagery associatively, drawing from a range of sources and evoking a dreamlike, politicized reality. My goal is to produce works that speak to today’s bizarre compression of imagery, information, and geopolitics.
