My recent work investigates the intersection and collision of power dynamics, segregation, cross and inverse-racism, antisemitism, bigotry and the theologically-driven white male supremacy prevalent in today’s international, socio-political landscape. The work speaks to the subversion and inversion of the power structure and the collapsing, contrasting ship-of-fools swing in modern culture, often times ignited by traditional educational institutions.

Through my images I explore and exploit the mental, physical, emotional, psychic pain and scars left on the modern psyche of victims of violence and segregation, and the PTSD infused, exposed-nerve, reactionary, post-modernist deconstructionist behavior of today’s flip-flop focus of shtick vs. substance, spin vs. sincerity, and the ever-growing sense of universal fear and emptiness in the modern dystopian present.
