Artist statement
The installations and paintings reflect contemporary experience; the co-mingling of news and entertainment, the consequences of the ownership of media by a small number of companies and the loss of constitutional protections. America as defined by our Bill of Rights is in a state of flux. The who, what, where and why of journalism has been replaced by the pursuit of celebrity news and crime. These artworks ironically employ the tools of investigative journalism to critique the absence of the presence of critically important news stories. We are all at risk for misinformation and the rise of opinion as news.
