I am interested in the places in my art that evolve through the process of working; where elements crack, drip, ooze. Elements that disappear may later re-emerge. They appear randomly, but are kept intuitively. Shapes, colors, and marks work together to create harmony or tension, but preferably fall on the side of discord. I see these elements as infinitely similar to the way events take place throughout my life, working together as a greater whole and only falling into place when they are in context of an inter-related system.
Materiality is critical to my work and often the starting place for inspiration. Newspaper clippings from letter exchanges with my grandmother, cheesecloth reminiscent of the curdling milk hanging from every bathroom sink in my mother’s house, snips of hair from poorly planned haircutting experiments. These become the foundation for intimately curated worlds.
