Mesmerized by materials objects. High end fashion, rare metals and stones, even condos in a lustrous skyscraper. Things that are sought after or seem to be sought after. I am questioning our instinctual attraction to ‘Shiny’ objects and its relationship to the desire and temptation of a materialistic nature. I am creating from the standpoint of the object being a one of one personal expression squeezed into an "aesthetic" product we call art.
My process combines many different media. I often used epoxy resin in many of my works because it has a very fabricated yet seductive feel to it, as well as often using security devices and disposable zip ties which have many references to the value of the "product".
Through my work I am trying to reflect our fast paced, materialistic, gluttonous society.
