The viewer is led through a series of choices and materials that appear chaotic. Color and form are used to activate the space, creating a complicated relationship between the natural and unnatural. I am never too comfortable in nature, and know to expect the unexpected. This has become a theme in my work. I want my paintings to reveal themselves slowly, with some anxiety, and to be inviting when you’re in a room with them. I want the viewer to imagine what it would be like to live in painting they are looking at.
