ARTIST STATEMENT: In my work, I interrogate how visual cues found in historical photographs, mass media, political propaganda, and personal archives influence or inflect social or cultural narratives. By playing with the presentation of allusive (often figural) imagery, I create a space that is uncannily recognizable yet opaque. As figuration is understood to derive meaning from its varying distances from naturally occurring forms, or reality, it holds special meaning in constructing personal and social histories. My objective is to play with the nature of that correspondence.

Floating Through Space and Time

These drawings explore how identity (cultural, political, and personal) becomes obscured due to lack of contextualization. Based on photographs from the early 1900s, the characters in the drawings are deliberately extracted from their original context. Additionally, by drawing on a small scale and omitting, blurring, or fading some features, I encourage the viewer to more closely investigate how lack of information shapes/misshapes one's perception of another's identity.
