My practice focuses primarily on combining painting and collage to create multi-layered and textured paintings and works on paper. Layers of paint reveal a network of collected material - newspapers, comic books, advertisements, book pages - as well as artist made materials - figure drawings, sketchbook pages, and personal notes. The visual result pays homage to the décollage and assemblage movements of the 1950/60's, and maintains an aesthetic similar to that of the inner walls of the subway system.
