Artist Statement
Calling attention to variations in perception, I create works through an intersection of painting and installation. My method is like playing a visual game of telephone with myself where the viewer is the last ear. I quickly paint the landscape around me, and using these paintings as visual reference, I create installations from found materials, rejected paintings, whatever is on hand. By returning to the same locations, I try to capture the subtle shifts in the environment. Employing formal decisions and shifts in scale, I address the ways that human experience is inscribed upon a landscape and how outside of this specific process in my studio, we gain and lose information using any form of communication.
