My work draws on contemporary and historical imagery to create imagined narratives reflecting on the bridges between past and present culture. I’m inspired by the high culture of classical sculpture as much as the low culture of dollar store holiday decorations. Both are important symbolic representations of the modern world. I often utilize mass produced kitsch found objects which are replicated, distorted, and reconfigured with elements directly modeled by myself. Some pieces are almost overloaded with iconography, just as the constant stream of news and images scrolling across our devices merge into an incoherent mass of content.

History repeats itself in my work. The repeating past informs the present. I mine the past for icons to remix in the present. A biblical boy hero, modeled in the Italian Renaissance, can become a stand in for young protesters in the 21st century. Multiple layers of meaning and investigation exist simultaneously in my work. My own love of history, mythology, and philosophy drives my curiosity into how we define our cultures via images.

I believe art should be a reflection of the time and place in which it was created. In a globally interconnected world full of social and political upheaval and a 24 hour news cycle with mixed messages from all sides, I reflect these confused connections between yesterday’s myths and today’s narratives.
