Like many kids raised in the '70s, I was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books: worlds of inventive fantasy. Unlike many kids, I grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, its neon and glitz looming over the city. A lot of my work deals with childhood memories and popular imagery, attempting to make the work both personal and universal. Through this process I reference the past, while simultaneously lending my own post-modern sensibility to it, employing a limited palette, repetition, distortion and mixed-media materials, including spray paint, silkscreen, collage, cel-vinyl, glossy varnishes and dusty stains. The pieces are often rounded at the edges, appearing as prized objects; tablets encoded with civilization's most iconic collective wisdom.
