Abstract: "The act of making feeds my fascination. My drawings are meant to tap into the viewer's unconscious, often intertwining fragments of cartoon characterizations with abstract shapes and partially obscured images that evoke memory and recollection. Using techniques of fragmentation, movement, and process, my work is open-ended. My thesis consists of a body of work that borders upon figuration and abstraction and subverts the innocence of cartoon referents with a darker psychology. Every work I create adds to my knowledge of the materials. Therefore, my studio practice is based upon the accumulation of images through the physical act of creating."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
