Focusing on vanity and self obsession, my work speaks to discomfort in contemporary culture. Defining a warped sense of luxury, the work is uses the transformation of found objects into beautiful items and the use of faux luxurious objects to address our narcissistic tendencies. In these situations, sex becomes a vehicle for humor and playfulness. I reference bodily forms, use fetishistic displays of the tactile objects and use adult toys out of context.
At its core, my work explores a hybrid way of working as well as my relationship to painting as a discipline. Hybridity becomes a way in which I can explore a multitude of formats without separation. I use painting as a lense through which I interpret my sculptural and installation based work.
