Stenciling and printing are used by industry to remove skill and creativity from production for commercial reasons.

In my work these processes are explored for their ability to import graphic and cultural elements into the experimental arena of the canvas. 

Using manufactured items to create artwork in this way is a kind of visual pun, while also reclaiming power. I get to direct the outcome of an "industrial" process to suit my own ends.
