My paintings are a collision of three worlds from which we gather visual information: the subconscious world, the human world, and the natural world. In my work, I arrange things from all three in a synthetic way. I layer, cover, crop, and paint, using a variety of materials, including paint, mesh fabrics, and photography. This playful disorientation creates a space where things that should be separate can come together in the present moment, blurring into a meshwork of chaotic intersections.
