Artist Biography:
My artwork is constructed to be meaningful and un-meaningful at the same time, all the elements of a story or idea are represented, but no one single belief is clearly illustrated. I construct each piece using this process, I myself have no particular goal or story in mind, and I am in the same boat as the viewer, constructing a vividly colorful story that in turn justifies no particular answer or specific idea. It's as if waking from a psychedelic and surreal dream where instantly the story becomes fragmented, fuzzy and unclear, but a certain feeling and overall vibe continues to hazily linger. It is that representational snapshot of a dream summarized, but yet entirely too ambiguous to explain what you just experienced.
