Selections from a series of Illustrations created for a children's book chronicling the events of the old testament.
I like the idea of visual storytelling within the frame of a stained glass window.

Image, thoughts on escape and secret pictures
Playful violence and order.
Down the street, a 23 year old man walked into a Wal-Mart. He then proceeded to the sporting goods section, picked out an aluminum baseball bat, and carried it over to the radiant wall of flat screen televisions. Systematically, he proceeded to hammer at each television until the visual signal was distorted into a fractal web of color and light.
After ~29th screen was finished, he dropped his instrument and awaited arrest. This deliberate action intrigued me...I kept thinking, “He could have broken anything in that massive warehouse, but instead he went for the one object people would notice.”
With a single swing he distorted the new lens of western culture. Seeing a screen ache to function reveals the mechanism of the medium...it breaks the fiction...dismantles the array. This work shouldn't lionize the violent act of the individual. Rather, it is a gesture to see what I spend so much of my life looking at.
An exploration of memory in a time where everything is saved.
Image + desire + transference.
Experiments with an overhead projector and paint.
