Statement

I reconcile action and introspection to facilitate an attentive and honest documentation of my existential experience – as seen through the vigilant lenses of our pervasive personal technologies (ie: cameras, smartphones, tablets). There is validity in obscure snapshots that showcases endless changes in awareness that take place, especially in the times of leisure I tend to draw from. These moments provide a platform to have seemingly disparate elements or images come together on paper or canvas, much like seemingly disparate thoughts exist in our minds; perceiving the fleeting present-tense while constantly bombarded by thoughts of past and future fed by an image-driven modern world.

Sketching and expressive brushstrokes are intrinsic elements to my artistic process and it is necessary to let these occurrences exist in and amongst more calculated moments that slow the frantic nature of my work.
