I consider abstract painting to be a vehicle for registering an artist’s thought process. My work maps the contemporary landscape and the complex interplay of the personal, cultural, and political within everyday human experience. I am following my own curiosity, delicately balancing the oscillation between the physicality of the material and the ephemerality of the image. Hoping to engage the viewer on more than one perceptual level, I am aiming for the moment when the relationships between colors and shapes find resonance and feel closest to an experience of reality.
