About

ABOUT

I use the tools of drawing and painting to explore the concepts of time, landscape, and shared consciousness. I create obsessive compulsive environments from my own experience, referencing the self-examination of colorfield painting alongside the modern information age. The work utilizes steady, and rhythmic black lines contrasted with careful color associations to allow the viewer to navigate and attribute their own meaning; as if building a vast space for the participants to exist and form a shared story. The works' focus is on the concrete and the ethereal questions that determine our existence and connectivity, by contrasting memory and experience through the lens of meditation and imagination. There is a visual detachment between the participants in the narrative and the mechanically produced marks. The artworks serve as a mirror for the viewer to slip into an entangled consciousness; a shared mysticism of space and form.
