“Through my art I aim to instill a culture of critical thinking in my audience. I want them to question what they are seeing; to doubt the (mostly malicious) truth they are presented with. I believe that doubt is good for it is humble."

"There is too much vanity and so little critical thinking these days. We are constantly exposed to products created by self-absorbed entities which promote short sighted narcissistic views. Because of this, we tend to become lenient automatons. My art promotes the exact opposite of that arrogant complacency.”
