Artist Statement

My artwork is a reflection on the absurdity of common expectations for political hypocrisy, and narcissistic subjective illusions bred within Western dogma. Under the banner of individualized power and Freedom, I am attentive to the unapologetic moral deformations of modern industry, and the subliminal loss of self within both viral and face-to-face relationships. Through line, satire, and a varied distortion of both invented pop imagery and found, I allude to aspects of the idealized middle-class American fable, the actualized affair, and the growing rift amidst.

My artwork is an expression of varied anxieties and unrest within the modern Western culture. In the comfort of accepted branding techniques, my compositions tend to be straightforward, symmetrical and readable. I also utilize bold coloring and line work to further push my images into seeming quasi-iconic.

Though I intentionally rely on cultural familiarly in my approach to design; the symbols, text, and characters I utilize are antithetical, esoteric and at times, banal. 
With these dualities in mind, the imagery relies less on storyboarded, consumable experiences, and more heavily on sporadic, audience ideation.

Under the political banner of individualized power and Freedom, I am attentive to the unapologetic moral deformations of contemporary industry, and the subliminal loss of self within both viral and face-to-face relations. Through line and paint, and a varied distortion of both invented and sourced pop imagery, I allude to the catharsis obtained within distrust of everything, with the underlying motif being- the only joke worth telling anymore is the joke of You.

My debt is measured in pixels.
My heart is an emoji.
My passion can be quantified.
My love can be predicted.
