Artist Statement
"I create photography based prints, books, and installations with history and societal systems as my theme. I use a visual language of icons and gestures assembled into compound images to create narratives that address this issue. This language, which I have gathered over many years, consists of photographs of iconography and inanimate representations from many historical and mundane settings throughout the world, as well as imagery taken from mass media outlets. My goal is to achieve a uniquely personal social commentary and analysis using my language of iconography as its voice."
