Like most artists, I strive to elicit emotion from my viewers. Specially, I’ve accomplished my objective when a viewer reacts with an amusing "aha" moment.
When working with ready-mades, my design process typically involves looking at a found object and seeing how it might be reinterpreted. I sketch the object to determine the overall size, proportions, and display requirements. Then I actually manipulate the object, eliminating some original parts, twisting, bending, repainting, resizing, or adding accoutrements to the piece. However, I do not attempt to disguise the original base object.
I feel that providing a germane title to my work is central to understanding it and provides impact to the piece.
