Exploring Themes of Beauty, Melancholy, Humor, and Truth

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

 

Being a mixed-media artist, I primarily use found objects and discarded treasures as materials in the creation of my work. I incorporate patinas and paint, while welcoming the element of surprise to coax seemingly unrelated objects into harmony. Exploring themes of beauty, paradox, humor, and truth, I am satisfied when I am convinced that all materials have fully integrated to realize my vision. The Dada and Surrealist art movement of the 1920’s has been my greatest influence, with their concept of “ready-made” art and their admiration for the anti-intellectual and non-conformist. The artist embraces “hidden sources of inspiration in the dream, the unconscious, and myth, irrational modes of thought, and primitive cultures”. In these ways, I remain inspired throughout the process of creating art that helps to create itself.
