For the past ten years, I have been working with abstract painting. In this series of work, my main focus is materiality and creating fictional spaces. I employ an analytical approach towards color and material with techniques such as leaving raw linen and canvas as backgrounds, combining color pencils, graphite and ink with my paint, as well as a process that includes transferring paint from plastic to the canvas. These various elements in turn create a disjointed and sparse environment in the paintings. This body of work conjures up various associations such as desolate post-apocalyptic visions, the awkward quality intrinsic to videogame backgrounds, or the artificial reality that is fabricated for a movie or theater set.
