Lately, I have been focusing on the plethora of marks, signs, symbols, and patterns that structure our daily experience. I approach painting using a variety of subjects as infrastructural components. Employing a cut-and-paste methodology, I assemble images that reveal the process of their creation. Juxtaposing material and illusory factors, I call attention to the amorphous rift between representation and reality. My pieces are informed by the mundane components of both our shared and private day-to-day experiences. I make these pieces with the aspiration that they will prime the viewer for experiencing these everyday situations in a way that extends beyond the typical grind.
