I’m an Austin, Texas based artist who works in a variety of media including film, photography, and performance. Early on I was influenced by conceptual and critical theory at CalArts in Los Angeles but also held a commitment to work being accessible to all audiences. The key feature in all of my work whether it is working subtly or is explicit is the interpretation of meaning.
Much like the language of advertising, I appreciate and play with what are normally hidden ideologies. I’m captivated by the way we read and make sense of the world around us without being consciously aware that we are making meaning. Society is organized into imaginary hierarchies we have been taught to read and signal so fluently we tend to believe they’re real. I like to point that out. Some work, as I said, points to that subtly. But it is what drives my art practice.
