“Activated by formal abstract histories and craft techniques, I construct abstract paintings using experimental dying techniques on second hand domestic fibers. (…) This multi-media process invites the emergence new forms through formal explorations of surface, texture and mark making. The resulting frayed boundaries between mediums and pastiche address the post-medium condition of painting along with patterns of contemporary excess. Engaging with hands-on production I seek to address and explore metaphysical concerns relating to objects, causality and material relationships.” (artist’s statement)
