MFA ’11 Fine Arts 2D
I am a multimedia artist who works in painting, sculpture, and installation. My antic style draws inspiration from the sci-fi, fantasy, comics, cartoons, and puppets I grew up reading, watching, and dreaming about. My work attempts to reconcile these naïve childhood fantasies with the realities of our society. I try to explore my relationship to a decaying world that I wish to both fix and escape, through surreal, idealistic, and disturbed imagery informed by the history of portraiture, still-life, landscape, and abstraction.
