My practice involves 2D and 3D visual responses produced largely by the cognitive dissonance of living in an era of environmental destruction caused by anthropogenic global warming. Anthropogenic global warming created by ever deregulated capitalism. My works engage with an era of comatose consumerism.
Play is an important element of my practice. Play and humour are utilized to explore the increasingly narcissistic culture I observe around me as well as current art world conventions. Densely coded conceptual art is almost a norm. In some ways the blunt literalism of much of my practice is a reaction to this.
This statement can be interpreted on 2.5 levels (if you ignore the substratum of excised rage).
