My body of work has emerged from an expanding interest in how memory works. This theme is still at the heart of what I do, though the idea has shifted. Currently I find myself less concerned with my own memories, in and of themselves. Instead, I find myself fascinated with how my personal experiences fit into the overall American pop-culture of which I am a product. In these current works I draw from the aesthetic pools of both the contemporary pop culture as well as the tradition of American abstract painting. Using these two divergent styles I create swirling vortexes of information in which one must struggle to resolve the subject through the exploding pieces of it.
