Fine Art

Artist Statement:

My current work focuses on a combination of painting, photography, digital media and collage. The proliferation of images through the Internet has changed the way in which people interact with and understand works of art. By appropriating art historical images form the late medieval period into my paintings I am seeking to redefine their meaning and make them relate to our own time. Our preoccupation with death and the end of the world is part of our need to explain the unexplainable. I am interested in the relationship between what we can do and what we can only dream of.
