Exhibition on view April 20th through June 11th

Artist Statement:

The artist makes art and the art is about the artist.
I was born in 1982.
If you were born in or around it, you may know the feeling of being caught between
two disparate generations, analog and digital. My generation came of age during
a monumental shift in the nature of communication, and our shared perspective is
uniquely old and new. We’re a bit fucked up.
This body of work is a byproduct of that experience, both in the content and its
physicality. As a part of this transitional generation, I’m drawn to the nostalgic markers
that litter that path – to the things that endured as well as the defunct relics of the
analog. Airbrush. Old neon signage. Wood burners. Table games. Velvet paintings.
The list goes on.
The goal was to make work that is raw and carefree. Light. I hope its energy and
irreverence make you smile.
