My work is a contemplation on the concept of America formed in the 20th century, and that concept’s relevance in the modern world.

In my cityscapes framed by empty offices, I infuse each piece with an uneasy sense of anticipation, as if something momentous is just out of view. For years we have all had the feeling that something big is about to happen, and indeed many things have: wars, economic collapse, political polarization, and more have all occurred right out in the open, in broad daylight. Still, we stand dormant as we wait for the undefined event.
