Painting is the matrix of my practice, my device to process time in various paces: stretch one mark to an animation, or reduce one memory to an impression. My research ponders painting as a virtual identity, a persona with encoded privacy and portals of disclosure. My paintings maintain a rectangular format to construct a framework for my sculptures: my brushstrokes in an immersive space, to break the conventions as a mean to violate, exceed, or liberate.
My prints and digital images focus on the exhaustion and exuberance of a two-dimensional imagery, through an accumulative illusion illustrating an overwhelming potential in composition. My sculptures meditate singular gestures, contextualize a brushstroke by projecting it into a three-dimensional capacity. They are aspiring objects suspended between paradoxical states: an abstraction that is a molten physicality, an illusion of ephemerality that crystallizes to pursue permanence.
Via transformation in both optical and chemical states, mystified alchemy of my artwork draws attention onto a sensual experience to exemplify the state of proximity. I am driven by an obsession with transparency as a metaphor to capture the impossibles, the invisibles, the ethereality. The works materialize as a desire to archive, control, and situate within an ever-changing time.
