 My work exists within a particular mindset: the possibility of remembering our origins. It begins in the day, using the automatic drawing technique to channel memories and visions with quick sketches and annotations on Post-It notes. I later use these notes as data to be transferred to my large canvases. Once in the studio, the painting process begins, and the collaboration of drawing and painting becomes one of activation of the mediums’ expressive potential. This is a project built on the premise that impulses when contained can bring forth greater precision. My challenge is to present a systematic organization of the space within the square and the rectangle.
