Umberto Crenca 2008, chromogenic print by Lucas Foglia

I make art. The art I make is a product of my experiences, for better or worse. The work often represents my cynical, and sometimes humorous, view of humankind. My motive in making art is not to make art that sells. My motives are to create works that assert my individuality and to exercise the freedom implied in doing so.
