Statement


My work examines the socio-economic gap that exists between the majority of people and the corporate/political apparatus that shapes our world. By scrutinizing and questioning the way these institutions perpetuate this gap and are presented to us by the media, politicians, and our peers; I am providing the viewer with a lens through which to examine the world. This lens offers them an opportunity to re-witness their world through an alternative perspective. The use of familiar objects provides the viewer with a common vernacular, and this allows them to more easily understand the works. Introducing elements of satire and subversion into the works enables them to deal with difficult subjects in a more approachable way. And, this understanding and approachability can in-turn provoke the viewers to begin to raise questions of their own.
