My current practice explores the concepts of time and memory and relationships between privacy, publicity, space, and the human body. The investigation of place happens through the initial planning of a structure, followed by an intuitive process of deconstructing/reconstructing, layering, and combining collage, painting, and printmaking to achieve a narrative that is nonliteral, abstract, and quite ambiguous. I am striving to achieve timelessness, temporariness, and a dream-like aesthetic space in which there are multiple narratives as opposed to a singular one. By overlapping representational images of my present life with images embedded in memories from my past, I seek to create a paradoxical space.
