He’s been collected by the Walker Art Center and beyond, he’s won McKnight fellowships etc. His work begins with some basic questions, “What is the relation of an image to an object?” And, “How is our perception of the world altered by the conventions we trust to describe it?” His work acknowledges our lives in a visual culture and break down the barriers with which we see and understand art.
