Work from the series The Little War

"The Little War began in my mind about a year ago. I thought I would begin to comprehend the war in Iraq if I immersed myself in images and stories from the war. However, the more I watched, looked and listened, the further I felt from any perspective or understanding. All the footage began to manifest itself in my art as images of recreations and fantasies. This work addresses the conflict between how the war is idealized, how it is in actuality and how it is presented to us in everyday life. Our culture is saturated with visual media, and as we absorb information from all types of outlets, it is important to realize the removal of the viewer from the reality presented to them. "
