I want purpose. I above all else want to matter. "Contingent" is the ugliest of words. Much of the time I question the significance of the individual, so I make art that forces the individual's existence to be confronted. Honesty is priority. I'm not concerned with changing the world but rather asking to participate and be acknowledged within it. To be acknowledged and have an influence of some kind is to matter and NOT be contingent. My work is concerned with the pathetic state, but simultaneously a humorous one - completely hopeless, yet still hanging for dear life onto a sliver of fantasy.
