My work combines imagery representative of mythical thinking with techniques that propose to dismantle what I take to be the avant-garde definitions of painting and photography. Issues of mechanical printing processes mingle with iconography that suggests various facets of irrationality. My approach to painting is conceptual; it focuses on and challenges the avant-garde principle that the art medium is meaningful in itself, and engages in practices that attempt to confound the rationality behind that principle. I’m interested in making paintings that represent traditional approaches to the medium but which also enable a contemporary discussion about painting.
