Artist Statement

Los Angeles has a sordid environmental history as a strange apocalyptic theme park. Its plush, manicured landscape is a reminder of both a forced growth in an otherwise desert geography and as a monument to man's ingenuity made possible by diverting an unfathomable amount of water from distant sources. I am fascinated by the hybridized structures and blatant artifice of the city in both its natural and manmade environments. Hilltop homes float precariously overhead on earth that has a topographical complexity of embedded catastrophe. My recent drawings examine my love/hate relationship with the city of Los Angeles, while also serving as an idea generator for large-scale sculptures and installations.
