The ways in which architecture varies has ultimately found a place of direct influence within my work, their alterations spawning my own re-configurations. In my most recent work, I play with the idea of how I can re-assemble the architecture I experience by creating my own configurations, my own architectural hybrids. These new configurations transcribe representational elements of actual space while also incorporating abstraction of the formal elements of flat paint and drawing over a wood veneer surface.

It is through my painted assemblages that I wish to contribute and share in a dialogue with the viewer about our experience within, and the expansion of, the contemporary landscape. This dialogue is ongoing and evolving as these works might act not only as reflections of a storefront, but also a consumer based society. By examining these paintings we might consider our own environs on a local and global scale.
