Fine Art | Class of 2020
Over the last few years my practice has primarily involved painting, drawing, printing, and sculpting to produce a body of work mainly focused on a variety of observational and abstract portraiture but also includes a separate body of abstract work, printed zines, set design pieces, video editing, album and music art, illustrations, sculptures, and other commissioned works. During the coronavirus quarantine my practice has changed to a more abstract pursuit of the philosophical, cultural, and social ideas I enjoy thinking about through the use of ready made and sculptural objects. I am particularly interested in the discussions found in postmodern multiculturalism surrounding social divisions, hierarchies, and the social structures of the west and how these discussions and the ideas they include conflict and interact with western society.
I have recently been making pieces of work composing recycled and re-usable materials and ready-made objects and tools that visually reflect my ideas in some sense but also include a focus on the raw material value of the objects and tools and the narrative and composition of the work.
