In the studio I think about the formal and structural qualities of abstract painting. I have always been drawn to the visual language of modern abstraction and the idea of nonobjectivity. Now, I want to build abstraction with my hands, take it off the canvas and expand it into three dimensions. For me, these forms situate themselves somewhere between Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, and art history. I find materials and methods that combine the worlds of craft and construction in objects that speak the language of painting. My goal is to playfully reexamine the act and history of painting, adding to the language of abstraction in an attempt to forge a new painterly vocabulary.
