Bio

I was born in St.Paul, Minnesota and I work within a classical tradition of drawing and painting. I began my art career through the route of graffiti and began exhibiting my work at a young age. My background doing graffiti and later graphic design led me to continue my artistic education. I received my BFA  in drawing from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2013 and my MFA in painting and anatomy from the New York Academy of Art in 2016. Currently I live and work in Brooklyn, NY and exhibit with Gallery Poulsen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Statement

Over the past few years, my work has been a continuing investigation into the poetics of light, form, and time. The works explore ideas of the human connection to the world, subjective perception, and the processes that shape our environment. The subject matter and aesthetic comes from collecting the repetitions in my everyday life, my experiences in different subcultures, and virtual environments. By weaving these disparate temporal and formal elements together I create new realities from selected parts of my own experience.
