As an artist I am interested in appealing to a very specific sensibility and nostalgia related to my childhood and identity. I present my work as a cumulative body that functions and activates within the context of itself. By including recurring themes, ideas, and characters I intent to create a language of my own psychology that tells a fractured and abstracted narrative of subconscious.
I am fascinated by artifice and a fantastic fake-ness. I find a true love and passion in pop culture and the sheer creation by man. Where Warhol found a deep love of celebrities I am obsessed with cartoons, characters, stories and ultimately the moments where these things make you feel something. I try to deconstruct ideas into designs of shape and colour while maintaining an emotional presence. I do this by putting up layers of obstructive elements and withheld information. I want my art to activate the viewers imagination and make an exploratory moment searching for ways to satisfy the loose ends. Beyond that I am mainly interested in making work people like to look at.
I do not know who I am. I only know what I like. So in a way cartoons feel like my culture.
