He works in a variety of mediums, including paint, collage, digital media, and assemblage. The “90 Days of Art” series involves an intensive process of execution, in which time and location play a key role. Each piece captures a precise moment, a specific geographical site, and state of being. The unifying theme across the series is the manipulation of context and perception.
Being inspired by urban and rural architectural landscapes, his recent mixed media artwork reflects the industrial fabric that binds our current environments—as well as the imagined characters that occupy the space between. It is this balance between Past/Future and Manufactured/Rustic that informs these visual narratives.
