The main concern in my work centers around objects and juxtapositions that have become ubiquitous in our daily landscapes. With the inundation of images and items designed to draw or divert our attention, everything from spectacular to the mundane to the neglected averages out to become considered normal, and therefore bypassed without a second thought. I bring these kinds of images to my studio to memory, where they are distilled and isolated into simple, heavy-handed drawings that function in fantasy, but reference reality.
