Artist’s Statement

A symbol can convey several messages at once. Beneath its key physical information there are the underlying ideas, feelings and familiar histories present in what a symbol represents. When certain unrelated symbols interact, their meanings are integrated, and are transformed by the identity of the group. I am interested in how these networks are constructed, how meaning becomes circuitous, layered and hidden. By mapping personal icons and symbols I am attempting to unravel this absurd knot of information, conquering it with mockery and suspicion.
