Compositions

My initial concepts and process were concerned with a desire to deconstruct personal belief systems. I examined the physical nature of ideas, early-life indoctrination, and the graded layering of memories we collect through time. Works fixate on the collective & re-distributive nature of the subconscious, in particular the content of our experience that catalyzes nocturnal dreams. Small ideas or flashes of the quotidian become magnified and distorted, entwined between our personal symbolism, in both placid and unsettling rearrangements. We feel, with immediacy, our physiological reaction to the nervous system’s electrical shuffle under sleep’s unconsciousness. These compositions seek to obscure the otherwise instant recognitions a viewer has become accustomed to when reading a book, and to force reactions to the whole texture instead of the surface content.
