My own interest and motivation for creating art springs from a personal need to react to and interact with reality.
I approach the icon as a concept by maneuvering it through various abstract worlds and using many media, such as sculpture, painting, mural, and video animation.
The repetition and extension of my original icons into murals, animations, and drawings exemplifies the relationship that society has with everyday objects as recurring icons, whether those be practical objects embedded in our lives or abstract advertisement media creations. In this way I intend to bring up questions that are not overtly social or political, but that deal with the tendency of the human mind to create iconic and associative characters out of its surroundings and the effects of those associations on society.
