“My work is heavily influenced by youthful nostalgia and emphasizes unrestricted creativity, wonder, and imagination,emulated through the mind of a child. i collage to show the compatibility objects can have when brought to a certain context. while some are created around placement and symmetry, most of my pieces deal with process and abstraction.
I mostly work with older toys and other various 3 dimensional objects that hold nostalgic reference. i then arrange them to canvas abstractly as if i am lost in a stream of consciousness. I do this to capture the very essence of the objects, rather then render them to a 2nd dimensional surface. above all i share the same goal as Baldessari, to “not make boring art”. -Bryan Peterson.
