"My works invite prolonged viewing and encourage the audience to have an experience that is unique to them."
My work is about time: my relationship with it and an exploration to how one categorizes and marks their own time. My paintings are a reflection of my experiences remembered and are imbued with a sense of atmosphere and contemplation. With my works, I invite prolonged viewing and encourage the audience to have an experience that is unique to them.
The title of my show in the Machine Shop Gallery is “Imagined Landscapes.” The paintings represent atmospheric dreamscapes, referencing interior and exterior architecture. They are based on deconstructed industrial objects, such as trucks, trains, and broken windows.
