My work embodies the alluring, the paradoxical, and the brimming-with-tension moments in our ever techno-centric environments. Scrutinizing the often enticing aesthetics of digital schemas and illustrating their contradictions and potential dangers is a driving force propelling my painting practice. I adapt techniques from post-conceptual and post-analog forms of creating while at the same time incorporating traditional processes. Synthesizing, juxtaposing, and ultimately collapsing these methods results in a hybridized visual style that works to both destabilize and balance the ideas being explicated. My work covers the gamut of painting languages and mediums, from inkjet printing on canvas to meticulously hand rendering objects with oil paint.
