Artist Statement

     My work embodies the depiction of the male body and the idea of homo-normative masculinity. I am influenced by 70's and 80's  science-fiction anime, gay culture, and seek inspiration through painting and Hellenistic sculpture and combine these themes with my own sense of humor and homo-eroticism. While I use a variety of mediums and processes, as a mixed media artist, my subject matter is consistent. I appreciate the rawness of organic mediums and mark makings, but also enjoy working digitally. While I have stepped back from photography, my illustrations are a representation of a world I have created with my ideas of  sexuality and intersubjective experiences.
