Don’t Say Shit

June 1, 2017 - June 30, 2016

Don't Say ShitI am inspired by the current meme craze, and strive to create my own version of this phenomenon. It’ lowbrow art, within a “high-art” meme. I sometimes use unconventional materials like Perler beads, reminiscent of my early childhood, I still find pleasure and entertainment in its simple attraction. With the toys of my childhood I express the attitudes of my adulthood, often revealing my juvenile tendencies. I find myself re-learning how to be playful and subsequently my subject matter is often taboo.
