Artist Statement Submitted 2016

I am an artist working in painting, drawing, and installation. My work is concerned with the longing to communicate embedded in the images and objects we make as human beings. My abstract paintings use the light that emanates from digital screens as well as photographs of birds, flowers, and other conspicuously beautiful imagery. These abstract paintings build upon this strange confluence of images of flora and fauna that are continually recombined. The color in the paintings varies from the blinding light of the desert, the warm glow of an open fire, and the cold electric light of a laptop screen. Each painting familiar yet unknown, a touched document of experience in this world, yet placed in a strange psychic space between the natural world it grasps for and the technology it alludes to. I use painting as a thinking and feeling space, a non-place, a utopia.
