Visual artist making work that attempts to understand the object quality of images.
My paintings are usually site specific and react to the spaces of exhibition. I recreate utilitarian uses of painting, which alter representational and perceptual planes, to make the painting perform as the space and ask the body to assume the role of the figure of the painting.
I am interested in working at the intersection of disciplines and opposing schools of thought. I believe my work tangos with the process of baroque painting techniques and the presentational strategies and formal undertones of minimalist art and some of the conceptual elements of Arte Povera, a fundamental contradiction but a world of possibilities for staging.
Visual analysis is the driving force of my teaching. I love teaching and share with students the experience of making visible relationships that were previously invisible and not considered. I am committed to teaching form and content as a unit where meaning is always assuming a physical form.
