About the Artist
A transient childhood has led me on an extended journey to mark my place in time as I move about the world. My work is an investigation of memory and the importance of memorializing fleeting moments to capture the unique quality of a singular place in time. I challenge myself to create representations that convey both absence and belonging, as I search for ways to find comfort and a sense of being in the world. While drawing from places and moments specific to me, I hope the viewer can enter into a reflective journey of their own space and memory. My acrylic paintings, often begin with an underpainting of complementary color. Working in opposites allows me to capture the vibrations of light while also underpinning the idea of memory as an unreliable narrator. Many of my paintings distill imagery to essential pictorial elements- exaggerating the essential and leaving the obvious vague. Recently I have begun to embed my paintings with ephemera specific to the context of the image, as seen in Summers End. This, I hope, further grounds an image in the present and provides a level of concrete agreement between recollection and actuality.
