My images are drawn from a variety of seemingly unrelated sources: memories stored on blogs and cellphone cameras as well as historical content from the 19th Century up until the present. Most recently, I have been interested in moving past the photograph and exploring how pure shapes and textures can be assembled or incorporated in order to create new environments and figures. My compositions do not only incorporate found photographic material but also pure shapes (including gravel, chain link, tree branches), which are exposed on a silkscreen and incorporated into the final composition.
