Plastic is my guiding principal. I strive to work with its physicality as well as choose subjects that connect to its origin, ubiquity, importance and replacement. The body of work I am currently painting is titled the Power Series. In these paintings I am reexamining Romantic traditions as well as meditating on how ideas of power and control are contained within the work. The subjects I have chosen for this series are American leaders and landscapes (specifically landscapes with links to power generation); thus portraying subjects that contribute power both physically and socially.
