ABOUT MY ART

My art has a strong undertone of societal confusion.

I am mesmerized by the visual aesthetic of femininity and the enchanting world of celebrity but I feel ANGST at the objectifying message within our media. My art illustrates a juxtaposition between the sparkle of Hollywood and the hateful self loathing of a highly sexualized, consumerist culture. I see glitter, and I see gloom. I use digital collage as my medium for a fast personal release and sense of escapism, but also as a way to expressly recycle the digital images society is bombarded with. My work has an un-perfect cut and paste, grunge-like application to mimic the short lived, disposable celebrity culture we live in.
