Fine Art As a visual artist and poet, I mine stories that have been buried or left to die. I raise questions that need attention. I shine light on shadows and attempt to bring voice to the voiceless.
I am constantly exploring new means of expressing the “smells i see”. By re-purposing e-waste and other objects in my assemblage artworks, objects that may have found their way into landfills or toxic dumps among the world’s poorest citizens, these elements may now find their way into museums to be viewed by some of our world’s wealthiest citizens.
The Purpose of My Work
1. To re-purpose environmental waste that is globally endangering humanity, especially the youth of many impoverished African, Asian and European countries.
2. I believe in documenting my time on this earth through art and the art of the story. I rely on metaphor as a means of presenting visual art as literature. As a visual artist and poet I firmly believe in the story behind my art and the power of leaving a visual history.
3. I hope to contribute additional voice and attention to stories that may get lost in the myriad of stories presented as popular culture; stories that receive much less media attention than less controversial news. My intent is to add to the dialogue that may bring about creative solutions to problems of conscience that we encounter as human beings.
