I make art that reflects our current time and culture. I both hold up a mirror to society and reflect my role within it. I often think of medieval jesters who through humor and entertainment could push sociopolitical agendas onto the ruling class, sometimes successfully. Since today’s art market is controlled by the rich, I try to reclaim the power of those medieval jesters. With humor as a catalyst, my garish environments lure in viewers who get lost inside only to discover the ugliness and stupidity that is the driving force of our time.
