The Golden Pawnshop (2008)

I am a multi-disciplinary artist working in collage, digital printmaking, video, sculpture, and installation. My work seeks to convey my thoughts and feelings surrounding the human condition: the physical world, value, belief, and beauty. I make objects and collages using gold jewelry, scientific diagrams, maps, fabric, and found objects. My work mines humanity’s obsession with metallic gold. Gold has unique physical properties as an element and deep spiritual resonance in the cultural history of the world. I use gold as a metaphor to illuminate concerns I have regarding the environment, wealth and greed, cultural traditions, and alchemic transformation.
