I synthesize nature, night clubs, computer screens and sexual fantasies into an experience that interrupts desire and longing. Fractured elements culled from pornographic magazines, mediation from digital media, and surface tension create optical and phenomenological effects that makes the visible and invisible co-exist together.Moire patterns, strobing lights, iridescent paint, prismatic and flickering bits of visual information pull the picture plane apart. A dialectic process that cannibalizes all content and material, sparing nothing from revision. The nature of material, imbued with it’s own history and beauty is transformed, yielding a surface that holds an image and after-image all at once - explicit in it’s material nature, confusingly layered, and pictorially problematic. Collaging these disparate sources and elements together a sense of balance is sought, aiming to be both sublime and phenomenological.
