As an artist, I have found inspiration in the visual pollution of urban surroundings, specifically in advertising, unsolicited collaborations, and the reappropriation of and competition over public space. I am drawn to graffiti, layers of vibrant color, texture and decay as a result of natural elements. I use acrylic on wood, mixed media, collage, aerosol, and screen printing to explore themes of justice, empathy, and discrimination as a way to facilitate cross-cultural understanding.

 

Having spent the last 10 years living in Buenos Aires, I was surrounded by a palpable and contagious appreciation for the arts. The economic instability, lack of dependable infrastructure, and high crime rates, fostered a sense of loyalty between neighbors, flexibility in entrepreneurship and an openness to new ideas within the artistic community.

 

I have recently moved back United States to donate a kidney, which triggered a desire to explore themes of health/illness, institutional interpretation and management of pain, duty/freedom, and to what extent we allow unforeseen circumstances to shape our identity.
