My creative practice is forged from my examination of a culture that is visually represented as late capitalism’s urban decay through iterations of painting. My work draws upon my own observations of growing up in a working-class family in the Windsor-Detroit region and experiencing the social and economic consequences of deindustrialization first-hand. For the first portion of my artistic career, I spent my nights working the midnight shift in Chrysler’s Windsor Assembly plant, which opened my eyes to the precariousness of working at the last fully-functioning factory in the city. Migration and downsizing of employment opportunities yielded a sense of uncertainty and insecurity amongst those still in the region. By creating visual representations of individual and common experiences, I aim to explore and promote discussion around precarity through representational painting and drawing installations.
