I construct graphic, timeless images from hand-dyed newspaper, juxtaposing modern designs with retro content. The lively graphics characteristic of retro print-media balance the reductive approach to my subjects.
The detail in my newspaper clippings represents the texture of society; viewers feel a sense of frozen history. We're made up after all, of memories and lessons from our past. One takes in headlines, stories and advertisements, experiences them in the context of the artwork at large, and draws connections between the two.
I attribute my aesthetic to my background as a designer in the ad industry. Pair that with a deep love of vintage and craft, and you get a graphic blend of old and new. Lastly, my reoccurring beach-casual theme is pulled from a magnetic attraction to water and the mental shift that happens around it.
