Urban Generations

My art uses collages of photography, drawing, painting and patterning to create layers of images and meaning. The works deal with a variety of emotions about the coexistence of our urban landscape, nature and humanity. I am continually inspired by my surroundings, todays urban and natural environments, and have drawn some inspirations as well from Dada, Surrealism and Pop art.  Along with architecture  and urban themes,  in many pieces I also bring in rural and natural landscapes. There is sometimes humor, irony as well as melancholy in these pieces, and these evocations always thread through my work in some way. I desire to create a surreal vision of the world that incorporates the past, present, and future of our worlds landscapes, causing reflections on where we are today.
