Small Disasters

My work is concerned with excess and with the sacred nature of rejected things. I create scenes of invasion, where the detritus of our everyday begins to seep out of the cracks of ordinary cityscapes, confronting us with the things that we try to hide. I paint these things from collages or crumpled photographs, working from my own documentation of bags of household trash, images of my childhood basement and photos that I take in the backyards and alleyways of the cities I live in.
