My practice is defined by fairly distinct periods of fixation on a single image-idea, which I investigate, dissect, and reconstruct. Process, repetition, and materiality serve as strategies through which I try to tease apart (and then sometimes reassemble) the tightly wound construction of seemingly ubiquitous image tropes. Regardless of medium or subject, I routinely pick apart highly ordered systems (i.e. a well- composed image, heavily symbolic icon, or piece of music), scrutinizing each smaller element to understand its validity and its relationship to the whole.
