"My work appropriates televised imagery to reflect on society’s connection to mass-produced media images. With social media and Facebook advertising, the human being is represented ever more as commodity. My painting traces the history of humans exhibiting possession and ownership of one another through things-necklaces, photos, souvenirs, and other such still-life memorabilia. In this sense, my painting acknowledges the history of humans conceiving of one another as commodities. Yet at the same time, it attempts to re-establish the human being as cherished, emotive, thinking, original, and individual. It acknowledges the tendency to objectify the human, yet attempts to represent the human as something besides demographic fragment, as a commodity."
