I’m most interested in disrupting the familiar, combining images of objects most commonly found in domestic spaces and decontextualizing and repurposing them in my compositions. On the surface of my paintings I often adhere photographs of sofas, light switch plates, pedestal sinks, and televisions, surrounding them with fields of paint to formulate alternative meanings and interactive environments. My intention is to provoke a mental deconstruction, a decoding of visual language that will illuminate how we go about making ourselves and assembling our identities.
