Eyewitnesses of Infinity


I try to entice the viewer to look deeply into my frame of environments. My works create an optical and bodily illusion of infinity through apparent limitless space. There is an intimacy created by viewing deeply into a circular opening, as if peering through a portal to another reality. This also gives me a chance to examine social issues with this format.


Opulent Surveillances and Protectors


Video cameras have transformed the way we as a society see the need to reduce threat and the need to maintain privacy simultaneously. Heavy ornamentalism in this body of work veils the underlying seriousness of the fact that all of our actions are under surveillance of some kind. All our economics are registered by unseen computer systems. 

This work reassures us that there is normalcy in concern. This reminds us that we as a culture are undergoing change at an alarming rate, but that we are doing it as a community. This work fights the false optimism of commercial society, but not without reminding us that we are united in Orwellian defiance.


Moving Paintings


Exploring Victorian portraiture with 21st century materials and technologies allows me to embrace my Victorian Techno-Fetishism in pieces that reference Jules Verne and other past great artists and authors. This allows the viewer to explore them in contemporary ways.
