Artist Statement My work explores the limits of the visual language created to reify that which is troublesome to depict and thus dependent on illustration.  The symbiotic relation or fusion of environment and figure, the passage of time, and the glow of light signifying celestial intervention. Drawing inspiration from music history, national geographic, fashion magazines, electronics catalogues and art history; my work traverses the visual vestiges of an imposed collective consciousness in search of meaning, unity or at least overlap.             I'm interested in the slippery quality attached to the language of advertisement that seems to expire the moment it's produced.  My landscapes and figures dwell within that rich aftermath; reproducing and reconfiguring to create alternate environments with re-contex…
