FRAME STORY SERIES | (2014 - present)

This series grows out of a body of sculptural work constructed of throw-away materials and suggested by the ephemeral nature of the built environment in Los Angeles. The paintings incorporate this chaotic approach to city-building, combining random elements of composition with more formal structures. Titles in this series were suggested by the 1001 Nights, a collection of linked stories drawing on a wide variety of cultural sources. Like the films and theme parks produced in LA, the stories re-shuffle source material so that it reflects the popular vernacular (and extravagant fantasy) of its cultural milieu.
