When I was growing up, Saturday morning cartoons were my church. They taught me moral values, lifted my spirits, and instigated ritual worship over toys, breakfast cereals, and other merchandise. I lacked a regular religious upbringing, and whether I was aware of it or not, I found ways to fill this void throughout my life with comics, animation, and toys. These sources now influence my art to various degrees, as I attempt to resolve my spiritual needs with the superficiality of modern entertainment. My paintings feature bright colors, distorted cartoon idols, and abstract patterns which suggest the movement of the cosmos seen through a sugar-rush. I value the weird, the grotesque, and the impossible human desire of the mind to be free from the body. The subjects of my work become avatars of these qualities which have consumed humanity throughout history, but have taken on new dimensions in our plastic age.
