Which facts matter? What should we do about them?
My art is subversive, cartoonish, and political. I am interested in the intersection of art and ideology; in what ways can materials challenge our world-views? My work asks the viewer moral questions, usually about political and social constructs, to question their adequacy. It is through the viewer’s ideology that meaning is created.
