Artist / Personal Statement
I am interested in the tensions existing in the space between what is remembered and forgotten, between obscurity and clarity, placement and displacement. My paintings explore the dichotomy of attempting to locate oneself in a space that tantalizingly occupies the grounds of the imagination. The materiality of the paint fascinates me, and I want to create a loop between the unfamiliar and the identifiable. Adding films of palette knife spreads, loaded brushstrokes, dry scumbling and more drips, I am ultimately experimenting with various ways of concealing and exposing reality and imagined, desired space.
