I view my paintings as two-dimensional topographical readings of three-dimensional surfaces, rendered with a handmade aesthetic. I work within a limited system with specific rules. I consistently rely on one process, one orientation, and one modular shape. My painting materials are reduced to glue, pre-mixed craft paint, and food coloring. I choose to work within this specific regiment in order to force innovation and a deeper investigation into certain nuanced relations in space, color, surface, and composition. I am engaged by the possibility of exploration and variance that exists within such a seemingly confined practice.
