Statement

My practice revolves around the experience ‘looking’ as a reflexive self awareness of seeing. I work with painting to investigate the complexities of observation, individual perception and forms of representation. The object retains a central role in my work, both as the observed subject matter depicted within my paintings and as the material objecthood of the painting itself. I believe painting acts as a cipher for individual perception, while its limited borders even simulate our viewfinder-like vision. Through my work I intend to evoke a questioning of where an object ends, the subject begins, and how these dualisms mingle and coalesce within the space of painting.
