My practice is a work of fan-fiction. With my pictures I reassemble, re-contextualize, and remix the broad scope of my interests in music, art history, philosophy, and literature into a form that is simultaneously familiar and arcane. I work largely in painting and drawing, but also photography, installation, video, sound, and performance.

The most recent work is an exercise in unpacking the mythos surrounding mid-twentieth-century modernist painting and creating new connections between high art and lurid pop culture.
