Vinyl & Acrylic on Masonite Pegboard
Trapped between urban and rural America, the suburbs have often been portrayed as a creative vacuum – void of inspiration and productivity. Raised in rural Massachusetts, attending college and spending my early adulthood in the New York City– first Manhattan, then Queens, then Brooklyn, I’ve lived the last 10 years on Long Island.
Masonite pegboard, a well established suburban basement and garage organizing material, acts as my “canvas” for text and pattern based pieces with influences ranging from Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs to Modern, Non-objective Abstraction and Contemporary Conceptual Art. I am a folk in the suburbs. I make art. I make Suburban Folk Art.
