Today we live in a global society where “art” has become so imbedded in our culture that it has lost its original meaning. This imbedded art takes on infinite forms with respective and perceived audiences. More importantly in this new culture, technology has now become an ideology and simultaneously the communicator of this art. In this new market place, sociological and theoretical factors are trumped by the products integral attachment to the new ideology. In a strange way this is close to the old Marxist formula where ...” ideology is an instrument of social reproduction”. I create to avoid this structure and operate on the perimeter or edge of society where culture still has a chance of being born again.
My art has been exhibited in galleries and museums including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, the Basel Art Fair, the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Reina Sofia Art Center, Spain. My work can also be found in many public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, The Neuberger Museum of Art, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Library of Congress, The Baltimore Museum of Art, JP Morgan Chase, The Smithsonian, Wesleyan University and Rockefeller University. I received a BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute, a MFA in the visual arts from Yale University minoring in cinema studies and a Masters Degree in Entertainment from Silicon Studios, LA. I have taught painting, drawing, animation and digital video at Yale University, Pratt Institute, New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and The Fashion Institute of Technology
