Artist Statement

 

The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings is an ongoing series of work begun in 2015 that sprung from over twenty years of portraiture and collage work. Now at over 200 plates, the series seeks to explore a range of themes in popular culture, including the role of the individual in fashion, in history, in the artistic imagination and more broadly, the collective consciousness. The body of work draws its inspiration from a wide spectrum of sources, such as Magical Realism, Surrealism, and Symbolism. More specifically, it references cultural artifacts like talismans, idols, totems and all of the material detritus that surrounds us at all times. These characters are composites embodying notions of “the warrior”, vulnerability, industry, the universal, and the personal. They reference these identities as they’ve been depicted historically through art, literature, and commerce.
