ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is defined by its use of the common, often mundane, visual language of the suburbs and domestic life which become exaggerated and exalted through surrealism and starkly contrasted colors in order to transcend their lowly status, becoming meaningful symbols. Inspired by the relentless, and sometimes needless landscaping of the suburbs, I loosely reference tightly manicured French gardens as well as the shrubbery on my own street, before inserting the female form as part of the landscape. As humans have historically tried to control nature for their ends, so too has the patriarchy used its power and privilege to wield control over society and our societal structures. Symbols such as a common garden trellis take on new meaning where growth is allowed, but only where you want it, and only so high.
