Artist's Statement

My work is made of the detritus of every day life, and throughout runs a melancholic narrative thread about the absurdity of being alive. The goal is the representation of experience, and I consider my art practice to be similar to a band covering a song—trying to make my own unique version of the familiar. The connective tissue of this body of work is language.
