What new colors in the prism of our imagination can bring light to the somber questions of today’s conscience?
In my work, various themes of American masculinity are used to create a series of fumbling and occasionally violent narratives. Men take center stage as provocateurs of chaos, bringing humiliating and occasionally aggressive conflicts to the modern world, both large and small. Using a method of synthetic painting derived from the imagination, each work plays with the associations of form, color, and referent to bring tragicomedy to uncomfortable places.
