My work seeks to invoke the viewer’s memories of common experiences, familiar places or shared rituals.  The result is often mixed in with clichés reflecting the mid-western values I grew up with. I take my source material from Google image searches, choosing key words that are as vague as possible like “landscape” or “hotel room” to seek out the populist definition as defined by the collective consciousness on the web, a Jungian visual dictionary of sorts.  I mix these images with my own accumulated memories, images from fashion magazines, art history and advertisements- essentially the visual landscape that surrounds and informs me on a daily basis.

I use my art practice as a critique as much as an exploration of these values and ideas.  I think of myself as a tourist, a conscientious one, that travels through these imagined spaces questioning the conventions and the role they fit in Western culture- honeymoon suites, hotel rooms, museums, collector’s homes, romantic landscapes.  Painting is a way for me to combine these spaces and ideas that exist in our visual consciousness and distill them into images. The skewed perspective and flatness represent the variety of sources and the challenge of believing in an image, place, or idea as absolute or real.
