Epitome of Badassery
22 x 30, not framed
My work can be seen as an investigation of influences related to building power and identity. Often embracing cultural constructs with subversive tendencies the work explores violence, romance, architectural influence and systems of unknowing. With several facets to my practice (writing, curating, and several collaborations) many of my projects are research based, expanding my conceptual practice and the materiality of the work.
Specific pieces are performative works based around invisible labor within the art world, while others take the form of tightly rendered drawings, paintings, or installations commenting on high-modernism's relationship to science fiction.

The 2015 DAYL Charity Ball - Another EPIC Night will be held on the evening of Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the beautiful venue of 3015 at Trinity Groves. Proceeds from the DAYL (Dallas Association of Young Lawyers) Charity Ball will benefit EPIC and the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity in their efforts to fight the significant blight issues in Dallas.
The philanthropic focus for this event is again to fight against blight in Dallas's urban neighborhoods by partnering with Economic Partners Investing in Communities (EPIC). EPIC has brought together the collective strengths and leadership of visionary philanthropist Toni Brinker, Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, the Dallas Police Department, Mayor Rawlings's GrowSouth Initiative, and Safer Dallas, Better Dallas, to focus attention on the critical issue of revitalizing the Dallas community. EPIC was formed to bring together organizations that are already working throughout Dallas and help them combine resources to reduce the more than 100 square miles of blighted neighborhoods, which is 16% of the city.
Funds raised through the DAYL Charity Ball will fund EPIC's ongoing research into urban renewal, and support EPIC's crucial revitalization efforts. Online bidding will conclude Thursday, November 12, 2015 at 10 pm and will resume at the live event on Saturday, November 14, 2015. If you are highest bidder, you will be notified on Monday, November 16, 2015 by Heritage Auctions and the auction chair for the event. The organization will collect payment and is responsible for shipping of lots.
