The way we record and disseminate information in the twenty-first century, from Facebook to e-book, is grossly affected by the existence of the Internet.

About My Work:

In terms of translating my artist statement from arts-speak to layman terms: I make Internet paintings and, on occasion, artist books that cope with the book’s relationship to the Internet. The work focuses on how Internet culture, especially American-centric Internet culture, changes the lexicon and how we record history in the twenty-first century. This means (to paraphrase a professor I know) occasional saucy content by way of foul language; this also means discussing uncomfortable topics in current affairs. But, even more importantly than that, it means focusing on — and abstracting — words and typography until the shapes become meaningless, not entirely unlike logging onto Facebook or Twitter and attempting to read what others might write.

Pricing Information:

Reproductions sold on SOCIETY 6 range from $15-50+ depending on size/type of print.

Original paintings, drawings, and book art range from $100-1500, depending on media and size.

Commission work and book repair will vary depending on project, but general rule of thumb is $50/hour plus cost of materials.
