Swim at your own risk, 23" x 23'', Mixed Media 2004.

Absurdity is all around us and takes many forms. In much of my work, ordinary elements, with different histories, are brought together to create absurdities of their own. I draw inspiration from technology. Looking at our world obsessed with faster, longer, farther brings me closer to an understanding of the space I occupy and my worth. We live in this world with a constant awareness of time; we have become machine-like in this industrialized, overmechanized society. Many of my ideas stem directly from this idea of hopelessness in respect to one's own time.
