Artist Statement

Drawing from my digital calendar, I make paintings, drawings and sculpture that explore anxiety about time. My work is driven by a search for meaning and purpose in everyday life. I fetishize my calendar, compelled to record and organize my time. I use grids to map my values in shorthand, interpreting daily activity through code, color, repetition and text. Translating this data to watercolor and paper, I depart from the calendar’s utility and create aesthetic objects that conversely speak to slowness and subtlety. Each piece offers an experience of meditation in a collective narrative about needs, desires and anxieties.
