My practice is informed by the process-based language of printmaking and photoshop. This process requires that images must be broken down into layers that sequentially build on one another. I am interested in collapsing and decompressing this process, emphasizing the idea of deconstruction and accumulation. All of my 2D work utilizes a wide variety of techniques, both traditional and non-traditional, historic and contemporary. My work becomes hybrid forms of painting, drawing, and printmaking.
The space I depict within my work is densely layered and antagonistic in its composure, with shallow fields of clashing images, patterns, and color. I strive for excess, where a maximalist, non-representational vocabulary creates a challenging, destabilizing space for the viewer to inhabit. The motifs of assemblage, demolition, and accumulation are common throughout my work, and thus, as I work on a piece, attempts to organize a space are constantly being folded back in on themselves as the process evolves. As an artist exploring and reacting to this unsteady terrain, I see my artistic process as a suspension between remembering, forgetting, and rebuilding.
