 My paintings are fluid in both material and content. Shifting between water-based pigments and oils, I pour paint onto the surface and work wet-into-wet to create a psychological space where amorphous forms and figures merge with each other and their environment. The blurred edges and boundaries form a judgment-free zone where figures are emboldened to explore their interior lives outwardly. Their evocative poses are formed by merging observations from my everyday reality with references to historical art and popular culture. By conflating time and reinterpreting context, my work expresses the tension encoded in the body as it navigates a pluralistic world where multiple truths and experiences coexist.
