My practice focuses on the process of painting itself with the aim to invite the viewer to imagine the process for themselves. I explore gestural painting, abstraction, and expressionism. The work shows physical traces of its creation through layers of gestural brushstrokes. I abstract from the more intangible, responding from within through spontaneous, expressive, and automatic painting. I am also inspired by the digital world and exposure to such ephemeral, visual information. I explore both through my infusion of an impressionist, painterly, and bold, graphic palette. Inspired by moments in time and one’s existence in the world, I see painting as a means of archiving. I aim to create a visual language for the viewer to visualize this physical human existence, trace the artist’s hand, and discover the dynamic journey of its creation.
