“It is the empty space inside the bowl that makes the bowl useful,” states the Tao Te Ching. Like the ancient Chinese text, I see utility in emptiness. As a painter, I explore empty space through everyday objects like unconstructed boxes, open envelopes, and blank sheets of paper. I aim to make art that encourages quiet participation. These open objects are meditative spaces of potential and possibility.
