Artist Statement

My sculptures are monumentalized Artifacts that represent today’s culture. The Sculptural enquiry in my work utilizes the methods of Baroque art, which used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, and grandeur. I explore these methods by casting expanding polyurethane foam into seasonal inflatable products, which then overflows from the inflatables casting points. The bastardization of the product is aggressive, like the power of capitalism and its hold on us to over consume. My work is influenced by archeological artifacts, research into this helps drive my concept by dictating the way I sculpt. Sculptures can have contradictory colours, which are glossy and captivating but they’re all despondent, manipulated entities that have dooming qualities. They all challenge the human condition to re-evaluate its self, asks questions about where you see yourself in the world, and what your culture is leaving when this age comes to an end, because what is to be left but an overflow of kitsch product from our mass consumer cultures.
