 My works are about symbolic language and engrained memories. Imagery is rooted in my experience growing up in the South, boyhood and coming of age, pop culture, and family influences. Through a process of associative memory recollection I recreate imagery that references both nostalgic and unsettling times on bare surfaces, using personal storytelling, found imagery, cultural icons, and corporate marketing tools from TV and internet culture. The works combine joy and grief in order to question my memory and what might have been fabricated with time.
