Artist Statement Submitted 2020

I use collage, text, and installation to examine how agrichemical companies curate their image and conceal their past. I’m interested in how chemical giants Bayer-Monsanto and Dow Chemical position themselves as modern agricultural companies while concealing their pesticides’ decades-long toxic impact on the soil. I combine archival research with appropriated printed and digital source materials to create artworks that resurface company history and expose persistent greenwashing. By mirroring seductive corporate imagery, language, and typography, my work aims to disrupt perceptions and invites viewers to critically engage with industry propaganda.
