ARTIST STATEMENT: My work points to contradictory messages transmitted by the form and the content of the objects that make up the contemporary American environment, often referring to literary theory, semiotics, and feminism. My work is succinct, using humor or irony to momentarily make simple what are, ultimately, the overwhelming questions raised by a neoliberal landscape. Simplicity, for complexity's sake.
