SITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
Through my work, I seek to better understand the construction and deterioration of self and of memory.
My pieces explore the activity and processing of the mind that occurs during heightened emotional states. Through a visual system, sensory and emotive memories are reinterpreted as mark making and mapped as a psychological landscape. The visual organization of the marks stretch and contort into densely layered fields of abstracted familiarity. This abstraction often creates ambiguity in which the visual focus and objectivity of the pieces pulse as the viewer sits with the work. Like memory, the pieces are not static but rather force the viewer to continually reconstruct the image presented.
