I create mixed media work with paint, silkscreen, and pigment transfer. Compositions juke, push, and pull to create a bodily experience in the space between the work and viewer. Mediums, rendered in real life or pulled from pixelated stimuli on the internet, are filtered through photoshop, printed, and pigment transferred by hand to multi layer paintings. This long, percolating process, creates a sense of distance between the artist and subject while still maintaining a human point of contact.  These images are then painted and stenciled over, investigating the relationship between a natural and synthetic gesture.
