"To create my paintings, I draw from several strains of American popular culture and art throughout the last several decades. By mining advertisements, magazine headlines, comics, pop art, and iconic imagery, I hope to create complex, layered narratives. From heroes to hookups, these narratives investigate our interpersonal dynamics with a manic verve that is central to the American experience."- JJH
