wooden boxes, worn figurines and various found objects and his
elaborate collages produced from salvaging text and illustrations of
old discarded books, magazines, and newspapers, draws inspiration from the styling of the California Funk art movement and Dadaism.
The art presents a capricious nature that combines classical, religious, and contemporary iconography into vignettes, which the viewing audience can experience via a haunting sense of mystery or vestiges of thought and process that evoke emotion and memories both inaccessible and recognizable.
A mixture of technical techniques such as painting, assembling, collage, and antiquing the unpredictable surfaces gives the artwork an appearance of misused, forgotten, attic, or discarded.
