Region: West

In my current work, I build fragmented landscapes by digitally collaging disparate imagery I find on Internet image boards and blogs. The images that I reference are mostly inspired by Japanese animé and manga. I am interested in the interplay of color and pattern. Each work is a vignette created from an infinite scroll of images and data. While I do not intentionally construct a narrative within these works, they evoke emotions ranging from melancholy to ecstasy, along with my own pangs of nostalgia for Japan, a country whose cultural exports heavily influence me.
