Situated Above, I saw you There
As soon as an object is taken out of its original context, the purpose and identity of that object changes. While studying in Florence, Italy, I had the opportunity to express this thought in my work.
Adjacent to the ancient, decorated architecture lie practical, rigid, overlooked forms like vents, grates, sewer coverings, blinds, and railings. Many of these structures have a mysterious aura: they contain voids that are contrasted by stark, overlying lines. I am interested in the objects themselves, but also what exists beneath and in between.
These forms are the subjects of my oil paintings and charcoal drawings, and are seen as a way to collect my memories and experiences through the act of art making. My work provides the forms observed with a new identity.
