Evoking dread and uncertainty surrounding wealth, authority and consumerism, the works in this series appear like slick advertisements for luxury condos yet are permeated by an ominous foreboding. Security cameras, TSA checkpoints, and distorted ATM machines seamlessly blend with designer fabrics and penthouse views. Composed of both two-dimensional imagery and 3D printed sculptural reliefs, the works walk the increasingly fine line between the virtual and physical and between imagination and reality.
