Much of my interdisciplinary art practice is centered around the utilization of personal and collective narratives to reimagine the future. I have recently begun to refer to my work as ‘historical pop cultural assemblage’ as I often assemble and blend historical narratives and imagery with contemporary references and symbols to recontextualize their respective and collective meanings.”
