This series is made from found photos that are meant to explain, illustrate, categorize, or provide clear meaning about the world. I use digital tools to play with, subvert, or remix the imagery to convert meaning into possibility.
These are digital pieces made with a handful of different apps. The imagery plays with ideas, impulses, and sensations between sense and nonsense.
These drawings are the loose ends of a story about Albert Einstein, his lover, two neighborhood boys, and his niece who comes to visit.
This is the first chapter of seventeen completed chapters.
These are paintings I made when I first moved to Los Angeles where people really don't care what you do (in the best way possible). It was the first time in a long while I painted exclusively with acrylic paints which dry faster than my intentions.
These are drawings I did while in a cubicle. They tell a story about the origin of imagery. The drawings are done with pencil on old filing cards that had a phenomenal surface.
These are large oil or acrylic paintings about primitive impulses, personal fantasies, and the misdirection of perception.
