Tennessee

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

My work is a response to both the natural and built landscape and how we inhabit, interact and encounter space and form in order to address the theme of expansion and recession/ consumption and growth. My work investigates the built form, partly for its architectural purpose, but more importantly for the dialogue that these forms have with one another and with the space in which they inhabit. At times these conversations can be poetic, but other times these structures carry out very absurd and awkward functions that are often overlooked due to their monotonous role in civilization. I believe in the construction of a painting, laying down a framework for which all subsequent layers will have support to rest upon. The concept of ‘building’ a painted image/ form allows for a more sincere discourse with my interest in the constructed landscape and with my fascination of structural form.
