            “My work often derives from popular culture using various and disparate sources including television, social media and music. Using popular culture as a readily available raw material, in an attempt to subvert and unearth embedded imperceptible social structures. Rendering the kaleidoscope of cascading cultural codes partially visible, likened to viewing its essence through the fictional “x-ray specs” rather than viewing the entire actuality. I embrace aspects of culture not obviously visible or easily verbalized, I often refer to many of my works as humorous renditions” – Stephanie Hough
