CAKE

CAKE (2016-present) reinterprets the monotony of suburbia and its cluttered landscapes as a colorful wasteland. Illustrations of melancholy flags and telephone poles jut into the sky over bright blobs representing landfills and litter. Free magazines, coupons, and grocery store circulars are re-purposed into unlikely collages on paper, cardboard, and wood. The artwork is constantly changing with new doodles and collages added and edited over time.

SNAPSHOTS

SNAPSHOTS (1999-present) are random images captured on disposable film or digital cameras. Many of the photographs have been printed as 8x10in glossy prints at local convenient stores and kept in a box. The photographs document the mundane observations and experiences of a suburban African American millennial.

In the age of the selfie, it is rare to continually turn the lens downward or upward. These images were not originally captured with the intention of creating art. The act of walking and looking has merely been documented, but over time that documentation has amounted to hundreds of snapshots.
