I am using art history as a muse—a starting point for discovery through appropriation and deconstruction. Like a hacker, I decode pictorial information and subvert it to serve my aesthetic vision. I am chemically breaking down posters and inkjet reproductions of paintings, while utilizing and questioning the inalterable prestige of each piece. By dismantling historical ideology, I create my own personal aesthetic vocabulary and signature, which ultimately questions perceptual influences and expectations.
