My work investigates the significance of communication, camaraderie, perception, and
memory in contemporary American culture. I use imagery of social interactions and
celebrations such as birthday parties, camping scenes, picnics, family vacations, drug-induced
raves, and art openings, as source material to study psychological states and the significance of
group gatherings. Some revel in suburban banality surrounded by shot glasses and empty
whisky bottles, some embrace one another, some engage in games; all co-exist in an
environment that is visually sculpted – with color and form – to mimic the conscious states
and emotional impulses present.
