“Less Syllables, Please.”

My work explores space, form, and imagination through paintings, sculptures, and installations. Ranging in content, my work revolves around depicting mundane, everyday objects with an air of romanticization. With a large admiration for Dutch Still Lifes, habitually my arrangements seemed to nod to the old masters. My work harkens back settings and objects that recall a simpler time, just beyond the reach of the viewer. I tend to focus on tapping into the feeling that you (my audience) receive when you bite into something nostalgic of your childhood. I often refer to technology in my work, as it is rapidly evolving, it’s an easy way to timestamp. I attempt to force imagination through manipulation of space, blurring the lines between wall and floor plains, and limiting color palettes.
