I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Walker Meat series

I worked with images of the Fast and the Furious actor Paul Walker for this body of work. I got into Paul Walker after looking at his IG and realizing he was dead for over a year. I'm really interested in how his image continues to be spread and even grows in spite of there being no person there to support it. A combination of organic fan-based reproduction combined with various for-profit organizations keeps the image alive. Fans show love through things like reposts, tribute videos, and drawings while industrial reproduction via film and interviews adds value by continuing to reproduce or in some cases even reanimate his body. I wanted to see how I would show these competing worlds in an artwork. I combined painted meat and printed images to stand in for these two worlds; the body and the image, love and capital.
