ARTIST STATEMENT:


I freely misapply traditional artistic methods of photography, painting, and sculpture by purposely misaligning materials and connecting collected fragments to question the precarious nature of truth and transformation. Materiality is essential to develop my ideas, subordinating form to process. I often enlist obliterated images downloaded and printed from the internet, inherited objects, and traditions of painting to build connections between constructed through mimicry and the fallacy of memory.
