Artist Statement

Reflexive thinking is a critical analysis focused on understanding the ethos of culture and communities. Culture can be recognized as a group of people who have come together around a shared world-view, having a "deep grammar" made up of shared symbols, stories and opinions and these elements often evolve and adapt over time. Power shifts, propaganda, globalization and technology developments are just some of the factors which affect ideas and merge communities leaving syncretic hybrids behind.


I am fascinated by the syncretism that can be found within culture and my work focuses on recognizing how our ideas of the world came to be. Through the use of recognizable symbols and a linear narrative rendered in a bright and playful aesthetic, my work creates a storybook-like space within which we can question worldviews in simplified terms
