Having lived in urban environments my entire life, I’ve come to appreciate the angles and lines found in manmade structures. The surfaces on which these angles and lines exist conceal the grunge beneath them, as new layers are applied over the outdated and ugly. To me, this masking of the undesirable reminds me of the curated display of opulence by the urban social elite. In my work, I explore the aesthetics of architectural geometry through the use of linear perspective, appropriation of cliched artistic styles, and cheap materials to create subtle caricatures of false luxury, as well as abstract imaginings of what exists underneath our walls and floors. My works may be viewed as both kitsch mockeries and as sincere tributes.
