Investigating and exposing truth in current and historic events, I examine the transmission and dissemination of information and the ways in which we are distracted from important issues. We are subject to the constant and sophisticated manipulation of reality and the exclusion of significant topics by the news media. Using their power and influence, these agencies control whose voices are heard and the ways our stories are framed.
I document and uncover narratives of the marginalized and underrepresented. These points of view comprise our collective experience of fact and fiction. Revealing the truth of these stories becomes a way of looking at our past as we build for future generations. My exploration into our convoluted systems is often shocking and disturbing.
I work intently, building layer upon layer of images, text, visual information, found objects and acrylic paint. Carefully selected images compose my work along with metal, wire, bits of plastic, mesh, tags, product packaging and other castoff items from my collection of found materials.
