I explore moments of transformation in physical and emotional states, marking rupture, anxiety, and opportunity. For me, color, geometric forms, and edges act as a hinge between real and imaginary conditions. Through various methods of transparency and overlap, I reflect on a ghostly, illusive, and nonrepresentational space of distance and longing. Memory and time inform my ideas, as I look back on moments when I have lost control. These episodes seem to be filled with a sense of loss and liberation simultaneously, a longing for what could have been and the revelation of unexpected possibilities. I am curious about how perceptions of the past can shape the present and seep into the future.
