Crossing the boundaries of time, stories shape our understanding of the world. My work explores the narratives that influenced my formative comprehension of the mysteries of life. My Irish immigrant father addressed my curiosity with illustrious stories, and I was captivated by visual storytelling mediums like picture books, cartoons, newspaper comics, and Sunday school coloring books. I employ materials that directly connect to my childhood as a son of a painting contractor living in the suburbs in the eighties, like home siding (wood), book pages, and house paint, all of which inform the direction and comprehension of the work. By recontextualizing forms culled from the space of memory and fostering connections between images, text, and materials, the work investigates the mashup of narratives that influenced my formative understanding of religion, heritage, identity, and the origins of life.
