Art Basel Miami Beach “View As”

The question I seem to get asked most these days is what kind of artist are you actually? Are you a painter? A digital artist? A conceptual artist?

Resisting any one box while fitting comfortably in many, my practice manifests itself in many mediums simultaneously.  “View As” is a software feature popularized by Facebook that allows a user to see what a given webpage (profile etc.) looks like to “people-who-aren’t-you.” Enjoying the subjectivity within this term, I’ve adopted it to share how my work can be viewed in a variety of mediums.

What kind of artist? The answer is “yes” and is “both.”  Far fewer things are mutually exclusive than we often see them. We need our boxes and we need our ways out of them too.
