Artist Statement

I am interested in using representation, and the framework for that representation (whether it be white paper, a grid, a found landscape), as a way to present shifting or contradictory perspectives. Using unfamiliar perspectives allows the relationship between the viewer and my figures to be more fluid, prompting multiple readings and meanings of the subjects. In my work, I am interested in exploring physical and metaphorical boundaries, the interiority and exteriority of the things, through the use of the figure. My recent paintings of the night sky shaped like the silhouette of an open mouth are examples of this duality. The viewer looks at something that is flat and infinitely deep at the same time, something that is huge and impersonal while also being an extremely intimate part of the body.

Right now, I am working on a number of animations, where the original video footage is broken into individual frames, each frame is painted, and then the paintings are animated. The individual paintings and the animation are then exhibited together, juxtaposing two representations of a single event: one organized spatially in a grid, and the other temporally in a real-time animation.

My recent watercolors dissolve distinctions between our bodies and their environments, creating sites that conflate the public and private. Turning the inside outside, The drawings create shifting, elastic spaces of dominance and submission, creating "landscapes” that are at once active and passive.
