Artist Statement

My work examines multiple themes and styles. I primarily play with abstracting forms found either in nature or scientific theories, such as mathematical sound waves. From a conceptual standpoint I often explore themes ranging from popular culture, to advertising and propaganda. I find inspiration from the Constructivists and outsider artists such as Alexander Lobanov.
