Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
“The workings of the contemporary art world – be it the means of artistic influence, popular art-making tactics, or mass distribution of imagery/criticism via popular publications – are of interest within my work. Ideas surrounding the need to reflect upon popular artistic actions and current art world trends drive both the conceptual and methodical decisions that I make when creating art objects.
That said, currently I am exploring the aesthetics and philosophies of minimalism through the means of negating or obliterating information on appropriated/found images. By digesting artistic styles through painting/sculpture, or blatantly appropriating ideas and imagery digitally, my work both embraces and reacts against historical modern art trends while creating simple visual abstractions. Ultimately I am working towards the invocation of intriguing conceptual work while investigating the aesthetics of the imagery. ”
