My work references the anxiety, and uncertainty of now in which fiction is more relevant than truth. Where truth has become a condition to be managed, controlled, and transformed into ever changing and evolving stories that masquerade as unadulterated facts. Under these conditions one never knows where solid ground lies; there is no bedrock of assurance to depend on.

The work is combination of acrylic, house paint, oil, and oil stick. Generally the work is done quickly with little concern for accurate rendering, usually in thick, chunky and paint done on paper or canvas.
