Monster Mash 2017

Mint Monster Mash, 2017

Creating a world where color theory meets sculpture. My work explores personal nostalgia and indulgence through references to sweets, toy culture, and 80’s and 90’s retro flare. I’m interested in the idea of excess in today’s throwaway society. Using mediums such as sculpture and painting, I convey a “sugar coated” reality filled with over stimulation and re-appropriated ideas. Sprinkled pills, oversized diamonds, toys of an era, splashed with glitter and a wet gloss finish. My sculptures explore the feeling of a lustful existence and emotional desire, a combination of glutinous shinny landscapes who reveal childhood colors of cotton candy blue and bubble gum pink.
