"My practice constitutes a network, in constant flux, in absorption of adjacent content, in defocused experience of the contemporary, in rhizomic replication, and in reference to itself. My work occupies the field of painting/installation with studio process and site as its subject. The work flips between digital and material, process and object, thought and action, and the present and memory. I explore painting, drawing, digital practice, sculpture, text, and sound to create totalizing environments. I use art history (often painting history) as a significant input to my practice. Investigations of specific artists become content and media within my unfolding worlds. These installations create synaptic experience of art, the heroic, the functional, and camp."
