About The Artwork

My work is created from obsolete or discarded textual materials. "Under Pressure" is created from the pages of a 1950s Mirro-Matic pressure cooker manual. The work consists of numerous layers of acrylic paint, original source material, and oil stick suspended in resin on archival aluminum panel. The artwork is wired and ready for hanging. The metal frame attached to the back of the artwork is not visible from the front, making the artwork appear to float on the wall.

Shipping & Returns

Delivery Time:Typically 5-7 business days for domestic shipments, 10-14 business days for international shipments.

Viewers are often initially drawn to my work because of the bold colors, patterns and movement, but upon closer inspection they are pulled into a world of tiny details, one bleeding into the next, creating a fantastical narrative from the bits of the original source material that remain unobstructed. I begin each piece by deconstructing a single source material so that I no longer see it in the form it was originally presented, looking to uncover repeating forms, images, colors and ideas that will form the basis of the artwork. As I start to build the layers of the artwork the process is less an act of collage as a re-weaving of the original source material in a form that allows the viewer to interact with the ideas contained in those materials in a new way. Perhaps my favorite comment I regularly get from visitors: “I could get lost in your work for hours.”
