“15 Minutes of Fame”

I present the first in depth work I created for Dance Film I with Mitchell Rose. “15 Minutes of Fame” explores the humanity that is often shrouded and hidden by media attention, and mainly its destruction of individuality and depth. This work is based on Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Diptych. I’d like to thank the wonderful…

Preserved, Revered, in Whole

The act of art making is intensely and inherently vulnerable… what else is new. You take some of the deepest bits of your soul and put it in a glass box, or in our case a black box, for people to experience, question, indulge in, judge, fall in love with, or worse, walk away utterly…

For the people that love to generate work, it can become plain frustrating. I identify as the latter. Nevertheless, one has to learn to take the…

Millennials in Momentum

I have many feelings, emotions, and thoughtful, informed opinions about all that’s going on in our country right now. But as an artist trying to see the good in the world, I will let my work speak for itself. PSA to artists everywhere: now is the time to mobilize. Your work has never been as…
