Though I am a printmaker and draftsman by trade, there are many routes in which I create images. Mostly my work can be separated into two categories. I create a personal mythology in which I explore my existence as an adopted child through pseudo histories and dystopian futures; and more subconscious approaches to sociopolitical commentary through retro futuristic war technologies. As I examine the results of my labor I notice the progressive destruction of a metropolitan area. The degradation is beautiful and most notable in the man made structures and objects from the American industrial revolution. Exposed pipelines, large steal fittings, and cast iron create abstracted forms that tell a tale of technological evolution. The crude forms created by machines slowly melt with the help of our pollution and most importantly, natural processes. These bodies of work evolve in aesthetic as I problem solve through the most appropriate medium, whether it be sculpture, paint, or printmaking. The resolution is never apparent and only begs for another question posed. This journey is at the essence of my creative process. I do not seek to obtain results from these questions.
