We often measure the value of something by its profitability. This can be seen in our treatment of the environment and my recent work addresses this concern. While the imagery is uniquely Louisianan, it reflects global concerns regarding pollution and climate change.
My style is strongly influenced by different cultures, as well as the mass media and consumerism. Pop culture symbols frequently appear in my work and images such as oil pipelines, broken Mardi Gras beads, carnival masks and jester caps may convey multiple meanings. Ultimately, my goal is to intrigue, engage and challenge the viewer.
