The colors from an early 1960’s American kitchenette set. Photographs of juvenile offenders from the 1950s. 1930’s cartoon serials. These are some of the visual building blocks of my most recent work. My practice is a manifestation of a dialogue happening between my ears; sometimes intentional, sometimes accidental. My most recent series are fictional narratives mirroring my current reality.
My current practice explores narratives constructed with found objects and obscure historical imagery. The mediums are assembled around an internal dialogue and manifest into a more tactile realm; my gut reactions around the divergence of American dominant culture family paradigms and the reality of the modern working class experience.
