“I believe one of my duties as an artist is to make a comment on the times in which I live. I want to use my position to communicate in some way what it feels and looks like to live in today's world. My images are not as simple as they first appear and they are not literal, but due to the relationships between images, hopefully balloon into greater meanings than the sum of their parts”
