Artist Statement

Through appropriation of art historical elements and the contemporary market I create compilations of imagery to reinvent familiar narratives. The internet’s landscape allows explorations of my ideas, as it symbolizes a tension of isolation/connectivity and youth/maturity.  I explore these themes throughout my work, and reiterate the tension through juxtaposition of contemporary art and art historical references in the same image.  As the world becomes more and more involved with the digital arena, it is important to utilize the tools that are available here and now. A growing number of image databases and archives provide rich source material for my work. The elements of the image appear familiar, however it is in the arrangement of these familiar elements that invoke contemplation for something new or different.
