memes are images taken from the archives of digital media. they are distorted, pixelated, and placed with text to create layers of encoded meaning. it is an image democratized through social media and made accessible through public distribution.  in this system, humor and desire imbue these images as they reach the expanse of the internet. they become mini utopias of ideology and community. through drawing, painting, and printmaking, I appropriate these images, to investigate the sociologies within them. what do they reveal about our culture, our histories, and ourselves?
