If you live your life with compassion, this too can become an art.
Mimicking the work of artists, such as Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, I juxtapose text and images to re-contextualize. I examine the seemingly mundane by isolating and re-framing unnoticed details of everyday life. Incorporating trash and found objects, I aim to re-purpose and create somethings beautiful and compelling from something that would otherwise be unwanted. In carefully constructed layers of mixed media material I distort, abstract, and exaggerate features for visual appeal and, moreover, to challenge our relationship with our stuff and that which we subjectively deem “good art”.
