“In this current body of work, I have been developing a language of painting that allows me to explore both emotion and viscerally as well as physicality and presence. I am interested in the ability of a work to evoke an energetically emotional response from a viewer as well as creating objects that physically interact with their environment. I have been trying to walk a line between creating something self-contained as well as reaching outward.
While creating efficiently eloquent shapes, choices of color and application are integral steps within my process. Transforming experiences and emotions into a language of simplified form, color, edge, and paint applications has allowed me to simplify what is actually complicated interconnected metaphors about relationships and the world we build around us.”
