My work uses formal painting decisions as its primary language. I combine color and form into organizations that define physical bodies in expanded terms. The paintings borrow structures observed in everyday life and use them as compositional formats and proxies for the human body. It is important to me that the content and structure of a painting are connected being simultaneously image and object. This creates a possibility of physical interaction with the viewer; an empathic conversation between two kinds of bodies. My aim is to challenge individuality, exceptionalism, and the social hierarchies that isolate us. Dissolving these boundaries is essential to a complex moral understanding of one’s relationship to others.
