Artist Statement

I paint to examine multiple dimensions of playfulness, particularly how it relates to public and private self-representation over the years. My abstractions mirror the interplay of past and present, imagined and tangible, that which is lost and what remains of one's self-projection, rather in a dynamical, whimsical manner. 


My concentric, contrasting and often cylindrical compositions include repetitive geometric shapes and solid textures that offer a glimpse into my painting process. Primitive, childlike forms continuously merge and split in complementary canvases, sparking a dialogue between time and notion. The multi-layered character of my technique contemplates my love of multi-piece canvases, giving the viewer a sense of distorted centralization while interacting with the works.
