The work addresses these issues through a lens of spirituality, beauty, desire, faith, folklore, and identity. Incorporating the ideals of craft making, appropriation and the baroque, the end result is mixture of sculpture, paintings, and installation. The juxtaposition and combination of the studio paintings, the appropriated and original kustom kulture sculptures result in hybrid artifacts that are beautifully crafted, aggressive, thoughtful, sexual, and strangely seamless. The artist seeks to change the rules concerning the final image by illuminating how the masculine can become delicate, how baroque can be minimal, and how rational can become emotional. The work is at once melancholic, excessive and exuberant, poised somewhere between celebration and regret. The result proves to be universal and painstakingly honest.
