Artist’s Statement 

“Some of my earliest memories are of taking things apart, usually in such a way that they could not be put back together again. How things are put together - how they work - was a mystery that I had to unravel. 

Using the rigorous analytical methods of my industrial design training, I try to figure out why things don't work. As such I’ve been called cynical, but only by those who lack the power of accurate observation. I prefer to think of myself as a sardonic optimist.

That some of my work is displayed upside down is a reflection of my world view. Art – long before the capital 'A' Art of the Renaissance – has been driven not by creative vision but by commerce and as such is a near-perfect reflection of society.

This becomes my point of departure. My work contemplates the relationship between artist, medium, and product – and thus the very nature of art itself. It is a parody of parodies, which makes it a tribute as well, with no small irony.”
