When I think about the mediums I work in, at the center of them is their foundness. Whether they are paintings, sculptures, or some kind of hybrid, my works are all inherently influenced by my choices of materials. The resources I pull from construction sites, alleys, and basements all have their own histories and narratives, which ultimately inform my own. When paired with the pictures I create, they become a story that is part diary and part metaphor, intermingled and fused together by screws and adhesives.

In terms of my choices of imagery, they are largely inspired by a combination of the cartoons and comics I grew up with and the high-art I would grow to love over time. These images are visceral and aggressive while maintaining a dark humor. They are a psychological and emotional cross-point: fear, anxiety, and pain with gallows humor, one-liners, and some occasional slapstick.
