My art work explores societal issues and the effects of accepted norms on the public and on myself. The baseline issue is security. People will go to extremes to feel secure! My goal is to create images that will start a dialog that addresses these issues and disseminates information that will cause social change.

Projected Idol: a madmanís obsession is a sculptural installation that examines the theme of the ideal male body image in western culture and the mixed signals that are projected through mass media. These conflicting images play a direct role in the security or insecurity of people in the name of economics. This work, begun in 2001 and completed in the spring of 2002, represents the focus of these ideas.
