Artist Statement

My art is about the power of the image to bypass the limitations of the self, controlled through language and its paradigms. The image is a life raft. The connection of the seer to the seen is the same as self to other , or me to you. Images, whether they be paintings, digital works or videos are gestalts, and embody identity. My art is about figure and ground that is transformed in many ways- materials, subject and meaning. I am a situationist and believe that art can create new paradigms for the future. It is a protected frame of content that can carry meaning, experimental ideas and projections. I have been a painter and sculptor, and still work in those media, but my primary form is now digital art and video, or hybrid combination. Besides being an artist, I have curated and organized many exhibitions, in New York. The Monumental Shows, Terminal Show (Co-curator), Pan Arts, Plexus. Recently curated "From the Ashes" 911 Memorials and "Ground Zero" at the Detroit Museum of New Art, and Freyberger Gallery - Penn State Berks Campus I am a Doctoral Candidate in Art and Art Education at Columbia University Teachers College...
