to destabilize the already unstable…
I paint. The substrate is in constaint motion and the two colors are emotions and reason. I capture the effect of chaos social and political institutionalized systems provide us. I complicate my paintings with video, installation and audience involvement to challenge the romantic notion of making, viewing, relying on language, and serving the creative market or academia.
I stand here surrounded by failed utopias. Social, cultural, and political visions that don’t work. Groundbreaking ideas transform into compromise. Disaster. The mind resist, the body endures, the self survives until the next vision arrives to start over.
Vision. Failure. Resist. Endure. Survive. On repeat.
It’s all about abstraction. The abstract ideologies transform into real consequences. Often idealized, abused, rarely corrected. Futility as result. Abstracted again.
