I currently like to think of myself as painting at the end of empire. To me, that means using drawing and painting to explore publicly available images that make up our visual culture and reveal our collective memories and mythologies. My goal is to create embodied experiences with paintings, drawings, and instillations that explore the ideologies and unseen forces that shape public thought, dialogue, and and behavior. By committing to understanding our historical moment and bearing witness to each other’s lives, we claim our ability to imagine better futures together.
