ARTIST STATEMENT

 

My work is an expression of a physical experience and an emotive look at identity. I am inspired by the interactions we share as people in both foreign and comfortable environments. I believe it is important for my work to be seen in unconventional moments, occasionally elusive, yet welcoming. A constant duality of expression.

I am challenged by the role of modernity and technology in my work, a balancing act of quick drying plastic acrylic paints and natural forms. The beauty in decomposition paired with the eternal plasticity of paint.

By limiting myself to using only a palette knife, as a means of application of paint, I further challenge the structure and form of each piece. Tempting my nature of rigidity and control, I hope to consistently grow both in character and artistry.
