"Science fiction, humor and evolutionary psychology all greatly influence my work. I poke fun at the human experience through sculpture, painting and digital prints which express a disorderliness that is both humorous and apocalyptic. Through my works I consider and humorously act out the contemporary struggle between our individual humanist and our collective post-humanist values. I am drawing absurd comparisons between our biological drives and contemporary culture. I am communicating a humorous cynicism of our anthropocentric perspective. I am using the abilities I have as a crazy ape in a disordered world to act out and make discoveries."
