STATEMENT

 

My work examines boundaries, liminal spaces, and what gets left behind or covered over as time passes. Literature has often played a significant starting point in the development of a thematic series, and especially when examining the relationship of the past to the present. Faulkner and Murakami's are among those authors. I aim to work fluidly between painting, object work and video, each medium eliciting a response in the other. Often, an objet work leads to a painting series or a video as meditation on a theme. The very nature of this fluidity in the studio reflects the interconnectedness of experience and the messiness of living and remembering, which is my overarching drive as an artist.
