Artist statement

I am interested in how our experience of the physical interacts with the psychological to create something beyond what is initially perceived. Influenced by our complex relationship to the world around us, and the laws of physics that govern them, these images are pieced together in fragments, creating an environment that is both familiar and strange. The relationships between these parts, and the weaving of space, form a balance in a chaotic reality.

Existing as a threshold space, this work hovers between the real and abstract, the physical and metaphysical realms, as still moments of transition in a world of constant flux. The textured surfaces of my paintings become not a sequential narrative, but the residue of information, memory, and touch as accumulated material, referencing the structures in which we live our lives.
