The work explores relationships between fine art and the subcultures of Americana found in hot-rodding, graffiti, and street art—all of which display extremely high technical values developed outside of academia. I identify with these values and am diligent in my attention to the quality and individuality of each work. In accordance with the subversive acts of street artists, I paint ceramics in order to overturn the longstanding tradition to glaze fire. While working, I think of the customization process that overturns the standardization of automobile mass production into vehicular uniqueness. I continually play with balance, both physical and aesthetic, creating a visual smoothness or sleekness, what I would call “Super Sleek."
