“My work grows from a concept where I perceive spirit is revealing itself through popular culture. I observe media/social texts with a mystic reading and try to tease out the true cosmic, archetypal play at hand and relate it to something tangible. I take what is attractive about particular tools of corporate or complicit social marketing, advertising campaigns, gambling machines, commercial newspeak, and pop-culture iconography and use it to frame out contemporary visual fables. My parables operate on the same level as our popular culture itself, blinding and obscene like a eclipse, you wont see the face of my inspiration looking directly into the light. But by observing the shadows you are left with curious evidence of the energy in the universe, the faint smell of ozone and a nagging feeling that you forgot what you were going to say.” — Artist Statement [PDF]
