My art considers site, community, material and experience through paintings, collages and public art projects. Inspired by shifting landscapes and the expansion of the idea of home as place, my work explores a site’s economic, political and social contexts through architecture. Using my own photography as source imagery, my paintings and collages are constructed through a subtractive process of realism, shifting perspectives with color fields and negative space to speak to the way we experience and register life. The fractured quality of my material and line constructions attempts to pervade intersections of past and present experiences.
