My paintings attempt to show the phenomena of contemporary cities and spaces from my own embodied perception, that is, from the perspective of being inside these as opposed to viewing them from afar. Thus, my personal experience of the environment pervades: objects and spaces exist in an amplified setting in which the excesses of our society have created an abundance of remnants and broken pieces. This creates a feeling of general anxiety and fragmentation that I endeavor to counter with an expression of harmony, in an effort to generate a feeling of accord that emerges in an atmosphere of dissonance. Our world is an amalgamation of pieces, spaces, and events that collide and detach, connect and disconnect. In my paintings, forms and space are broken up and then hybridized through color, intuitive line, pattern, and fantastical bits of imagery. My paintings are meant to reference a dialogue between fragmentation and unity, and between devastation and rejuvenation.
