Artist Statement

“My paintings deal primarily with the concept of entropy, where I devise a skeletal composition based on a system of symmetric patterns that are then disrupted and fragmented. The system of conventions that I set up for every piece are disordered into chaos by the combination of drastically different artistic languages. My work is about the pandemonium of contemporary life and the constant disarray brought forth by a superfluous influx of information that we experience everyday. It also explores how various technologies of information-sharing effects our own thoughts, ideas and communication with one another.”
