Artist Statement

My work explores and documents the gray area between public and private life while experimenting with non-traditional forms of archiving and viewer interaction.

My recent projects are inspired by the abundance of personal information available on the internet; I collect open-source photos of personal significance and screen-shots of complete strangers, and preserve them through paintings, illustrations, and installations. In doing this, digital scenes and portraits transform from disposable data-points and gain sentimental verification of their significance. Objective virtual ideas confront and distort subjective truths.

The works are filled with tongue-in-cheek humor, visual puns, and wistful nostalgia for time recently passed.
