I make associations freely, and at times, recklessly. Pulling clumsy metaphors from horror films, science fiction, and sports, I apply them to a loose personal mythology and symbolic language. I often begin a painting by first making a dimensional paper model. The symbolically coded scenes take place in shallow staged spaces. While creating these spaces, I am thinking about a reconstruction or collapsing of personal narrative, history, and myth.
