20 unique artworks featuring homes from around Las Vegas designed and built between 1950-65. This series emphasizes strong, slanting lines, muted curves, and sprawling, wide facades from the Mid-century architectural style that remains around neighborhoods such as Huntridge, Paradise Palms, Beverly Green, and Paradise Manor.
This project is supported in part by the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Bullfrog Biennial, 2021
Visages of a jackrabbit, banded gecko, and creosote sprig cut and etched from mirror appear against collaged landscapes of the local Mojave area. Each of these species is emblematic of the landscape and can tell us a lot about the desert biome’s current status. Animals and plants evolved to blend in and work with their environment are no longer masters of their habitats. The collage and mirror elements reflect the camouflage features that these flora and fauna use for survival, although less useful against encroaching human threats.
These three works were created for the Bullfrog Biennial art exhibition at the Goldwell Open Air Museum in Beatty, NV.
Mid-Century Home-ages, 2019-2021
Over the past few years, I've been exploring the architecture and landscape design elements through recreations of these classic midcentury houses. Studying neighborhoods in Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Palm Springs, I revive the clean lines and unique asymmetries of these homes through digital illustration and translate them through laser technology to hand-painted artworks. I enjoy creating a layered dimensionality from materials such as wood, mirror, acrylic, and vintage magazine.
Various Works, 2018-2022
I've been lucky enough to meet a few people that enjoy my artwork style and have asked for a particular home, game, or landscape to be created, often as a gift for a loved one. If you are interested in having something made, please reach out through email or IG.
