My most personal works tend toward a playful exploration of re-contextualized elements of visual culture. Often these are very self-referential – sometimes in subtle ways, at other times explicitly so. And while each image intended to foster a sort of social dialogue, it would be a misrepresentation to not acknowledge the fascination I find for the resultant textures, tapestries, and shapes coming about from the multiple layer-upon-layer approach of glued collage, scanned elements, and digital layering.
As a designer, I am frequently in search of visual order, attempting to tease structure and pattern out of chaos. Formalistic visual problems appeal to me: uncovering a narrative pathway tests the challenge: visual intrigue is an intentional characteristic.
