My work is a culmination of symbolically driven visions addressing issues of social commentary, politics and religion. Surrealism enables me to be less literal and entices the viewer to dig for interpretations. Humor and irony have their place in the work on the surface, but letting the vision marinate further reveals something more. Intent of the work varies in reflection of my own attitude, opinions, and observation at the times of my art making practice. Historical references in my work illustrate accounts of the repetition of history and explore elements of the human condition that we will never evolve beyond. They are the result of where I live and a global awareness, afforded by our ever-growing access to instant information and propaganda.
