Artist's Statement

I work in collage, installation and painting. I like to work in a range of mediums to keep things interesting.

The latest work is a group of paintings of B movie actresses with a 1970’s aesthetic. The figures are explicit silkscreens and transfers from collected pulp movies, magazines and fashion magazines. They are set in scenic sets stripped down to color and patterns. Older work and installations focus on the scenic sets themselves. These are portraits focusing on ancient states of psychology outlined and inspired by readings of post-Jungian thinkers Julia Kristeva (“The Power of Horror”) and Laura Mulvey’s cinema essays (Mask and Curiosity.)
