Artist's Statement

Consumerism is Violence.

The materials used to construct my pieces are manufactured leveraging "cost-effective" factory processes (mostly overseas), purchased for a very low price via the Internet using a credit card, and delivered via the global consumer supply chain using petro-fuels to power at least four combustion engine-based transportation methods (ship, train/plane, truck, car). They are generally plastic-coated, highly glossy, richly dyed, and emit a noxious though slightly pleasant odor.

These works are simultaneously Product, Byproduct, and Waste. They will either be purchased by collectors or compacted into clear plastic bags and placed in a recycling collection bin. They may very well end up in a landfill. They are reproducible as long as the materials used to construct them are in production.
