Artist Statement

I am interested in the life of a painting in the in between. The perceived structural distinctions within painting like the perimeter and interior can become activated spaces through cohesion or contradiction. Through negotiating the objecthood of shaped panels that both expand and receded, I am attempting to engage the spatial reality of the painting as a whole through indeterminacy. Considering how art is apart from reality and also in some sense an imitation of it, I am working towards a formal language that can question the notion of painting as received image. How does an element such as a line begin to suggest another form as much as it is a recording of a mark itself. Through elements such as patterning, gradients, and gesture, I am searching for ways that painting can combine recognizable spaces such as virtual space or landscape while not wholly retaining legibility.
