..and this is where I left off. So what is this about?
My work explores the relationship between Critical theory and copycat violence.
With influences as diverse as Caravaggio and John Lennon, new combinations are created from both explicit and implicit textures.
Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of the moment. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes debased into a cacophony of lust, leaving only a sense of unreality and the possibility of a new synthesis.
As intermittent phenomena become clarified through diligent and critical practice, the viewer is left with an impression of the possibilities of our existence.
