 My work examines the relationship between materiality and language. Recurring bodies and landscapes allude to historical Western painting, while a cosmic subtext, prompted by an interest in the structure of cosmologies, decentralizes traditional narrative. The allegorical processions of objects and figures usually phase in and out of their forms, referencing the permeability of the body, the fragility of structure, the body’s relationship to time, and notions of material/immaterial experiences. My practice incorporates multimedia to examine the porosity between objects, images, and spaces, reconciling existence in a space of cultural and geographical liminality. By approaching my practice as a process of translation, form is both gained and lost throughout the work.
