"My print and installation work hybridizes and transforms iconic imagery from the world of 1950s and 60s consumer kitsch... Manipulating recognizable images from this time period into new forms defamiliarizes them, causing the viewer to question the reality that they claim to represent. At the same time, some of the aesthetic allure of the original image is preserved, replicating the sometimes uncritical appeal that is one of the hallmarks of consumer kitsch."
"In my artwork, I explore the physical evidence and materials of domestic settings as a metaphor for peeling back layers of narrative and then reassembling them in order to understand individuals. I investigate and work to understand what is real and what is imagined by combining various layers together to gain a deeper understanding of those who have already passed, those currently around me, and myself."
