GlogauAIR resident from July 2018 to September 2018
When creating an image, the content is something that evolves by each shape, ﬂat color, and symbol that emerges. My process is spontaneous yet methodical at the same time. I try not to let content lead the process, instead, the placement of shapes, the spacing of patterns, and the relationship between color are all deeply considered decisions throughout the drawing and painting process. My goal for the ﬁnal product is to create an image that is dynamic and sound, yet playful and eye catching. The process results in a symphony of chunky shapes, bold patterns, and distressed fragmented ﬁgures. A hypnotic and delightful world of colorful noses, rainbows, and mysterious windows exist in harmony with scissors, spikes, raindrops and hearts either broken or too full to beat without bursting. My goal is to create from personal experience, obsession, humor and sorrow with the intention of empathizing and connecting with the viewer on an emotional and perhaps nostalgic level.
During my stay at GlogauAIR, I plan to further my practice and development as a visual artist. Since January, Berlin has been an amazing place for me to feel inspired and focus on my artistic endeavors. I’ve experienced my ﬁrst artist residency as well as my ﬁrst time leaving the U.S., which has been very conducive to my practice. I plan explore my ideas through painting, drawing and installation. I enjoyed working large scale in my previous residency and I plan to continue this. Residencies are a good opportunity for me to utilize having the space for creating large scale.
