Artist Statement

Many pieces of art come with a narrative, this is something I try my best to avoid. I get considerable inspiration from the Dadaist movement. Like many of the artists associated with that movement, I try to avoid meaning. I avoid traditional beauty, as I want people to question if my work even qualifies as art. My photos contain varying degrees of meaninglessness. It is up to the viewer to fill up the voids I create with their own narratives, their own preconceived ideas, even their own prejudices. We live in a world where facts have become malleable, where truth is a spectrum, I hope to use this trend to put meaning into my work. Even if the meaning only applies to a single person. Even if the meaning makes no sense to me.
