Artist Statement

We live in a world of dualities... A majority of the time things are not as they seem. This is something I've investigated within my work for quite some time. Though, in the past I dealt with illuminating hidden fantasies and breaking down barriers on what society considered 'taboo'.

I'm now exploring this idea of things are not as they seem on a more literal level by creating layers and patterns of color and typography in my drawings -or- using bright colour casts with my photographs that contain 'darker' subject matter. I do this in order to engage the left as well as the right side of the brain. Instead of slapping the visual in the viewer's face, one needs to think and absorb the image for a moment.
