  • apocalyptic archaeology

    Apocalyptic Archaeology features works that are depictions of a ruined world. The works are meditations on the brevity of life, and reveal the awareness of passing time, erosion and decay, and the ultimate deterioration of manmade artifacts, such as architecture, interiors, and landscapes.

  • dreams and memories

    Dreams and Memories includes works that explore the intangible and inescapable realm of the psyche. The artists pose questions about the nature and meaning of recalled experiences, and about the way in which dreams and memories intersect and even morph from one level of consciousness to another.

  • voyeurs/provocateurs

    Voyeur/Provocateurs includes subversively witty scenes-satirical commentaries on art, culture, and politics. These works make the viewer into Peeping Toms that spy on secret scenes.

The Studio

This artwork is on view at the Museum of Arts and Design in the exhibition Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities.

The illusions of permanence and perfection are recurring themes in my work. I use architectural references as metaphor, to express and reveal this continuous state of flux and entropy. The viewer's memory and sense of reality are subtly subverted by the use of altered scale and the fabrication of elements that are both familiar and strangely dystopian. When the expected visual order is shifted, perceptions are also shifted and twisted in ways both unexpected and revealing.
