Artist Statement:
LAUNDRY ROOM IV: comics and codes

1. "What, do you want to make art like some kind of a robot?"

2. This work is about the voices in my head, in the city, which we are all surrounded by. Conversations, texts, graffiti, interior monologue.

3. I just can't get over the Batman 1966 fight scenes: POW. BAM. What if your interior moments were choreographed as fight scenes?

4. The words became the figures.

5. Drawing is a mark, it activates the page, it creates boundaries and decorates the soul. A cartoon does the same thing but is impure and more fun.

6. I am obsessed with Futura (isn't everyone) but physically breaking up its authority and reassembling it in fractured mode with layers and splatters is where I need to be.

7. Legible vs illegible, spacious vs cluttered. I'm interested and want to explore both. Dissonance, noise, fractures give more energy to harmonies.
