ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am a contemporary artist. My work spans from abstract conceptualism to portraits. I like to explore how nature and the figure can be redefined to reveal new meaning. I utilize multiple mediums and processes to bring concepts to light, from new media and digital manipulation to painting, photography, and video. I strive to create lasting memories from the stream of disposable imagery that floods our society. In some of my work, I like to combine ephemeral photography from the internet with nature, color, textures, and shapes until the images evolve into a new, permanent symbol. Even though I start with a process-driven approach, emotive elements reveal itself to me as I work. Many pieces are infused with symbols of inner revelation, metamorphosis, and rebirth. By sourcing images from the daily barrage of digital media, I try to unearth a more lasting impression that may resonate with the viewer or at least with myself.
