On one side is the absurd and the exaggerated; on the other, the unassuming and the earnest. My work sits on both sides, unwilling to choose. Letting each side clash, tug, and then happily coexist in space, I experience blissful confusion.
Currently, my work makes reference to, discusses, and attempts to replicate the most magnificent piece of artwork to have ever existed, and enjoys the chaos which ensues in pursuit of this unattainable dream.
