American identity, obsessed with freedom, democracy, religion and guns is rife with contradictions. Americans are fiercely independent, emphasizing individual responsibility, yet we happily live with the influences of advertising and large corporate entities, which take advantage of our complacency for their own advancement. I have a fascination with these contradictions and the warped, distorted and broken mirrors that America, as a she, uses to gaze at herself.I also believe that the personal is political, and I create fiercely personal works to strengthen our understanding of each other.
