Project

Over the past six years I’ve worked on installations, using two-dimensional media such as painting, drawing, and digital prints, to explore aspects of memory, history, and aging. I’m interested in layering, translucency, and juxtaposition, using these visual strategies to help express aspects of fluid and contingent phenomena. I work intuitively and through association, creating a layering of images, textures, and media that are accumulated and hung on walls, in free space and/or placed on floors.

This past year my work has been in transition and I’ve begun working in more traditional formats - on charcoal and graphite drawings - with simpler compositions than my earlier installations. While the formats have shifted in this new work, the underlying themes of temporality and aging continue to inform them. They are very much in process and I will be working on them during the residency.
