The absence of equilibrium implies a state of imbalance and disharmony leading to constant change.
It is the sequence of these changes, and the innumerable moments of friction that arise, which comprise our history. The artist’s job here is to explore the consequences of this tumultuous sequence, not only examining the impact on individual and group identities, but also continuously probing the authorship and origin of these narratives.
My work creates compositions culled from diverse moments in the historical realm, bringing incongruous elements together into an irrational and non-linear narrative that deviates from the traditional. This interruption of logic provides the viewer with a new instrument by which to gauge the authenticity of information currently being disseminated in our contemporary mythology. My work aims to further underscore the state of imbalance of history by adding a grain of sand, one more 'Once upon a time...' and so doing contribute to a history and a tradition that are in themselves testaments to our duplicitous, and contradictory nature.
