My work is an ode to the fascinating history of the elaborate, the decorative and the surprising in world culture. Operating in the territory where art and craft meet, I seek sophisticated and witty narrative for my creations. I find images of places, people and objects from different epochs, redraw, iconize, then bring them together in peculiar ways. In this way, I believe in the ability of things to generate a historical duality in any given situation, providing us with beauty of the new and random. To me, the resulting work is a quirky visual drama of storytelling through stereotypes and symbolism, the synergy of real and made images that creates paradoxical situations in enigmatic landscapes.
