Artist Statement

I work in paint and pixels. In the digital age, images have become poor, where once they were aggrandized and rare now they are plentiful and unavoidable. Collage and the blending of already existing imagery focus reality back upon itself, today, any visual I can think of already exists, and I have never run into a situation where I couldn’t find the exact image I want using Internet sources, quite often finding surprising new ones. Because of this, my work starts as digital drawings and montages; it is through the translation into paintings that these images obtain a physicality able to synthesize diverse sources of information into a single pictorial space.
