"I feel overwhelmed by the never-ending tide of media and information we are inundated by. My current practice was built on a simple challenge to produce a finished work every day, to attempt to produce at the same rate I consume. My works are interventions into found media and imagery, sourced from vintage lifestyle advertising, history books, and encyclopedias. The resulting collages and drawings subvert and distort the original source materials to produce new hybrids often fantastical, violent, and impertinent. Often influenced by my subconscious and always evolving, my work seeks to actively critique that which constitutes it, allowing us to become active critics of culture rather than the consumers as which we are so often depicted".
