Artist Statement

I am a Brooklyn-based observational painter inspired by formalism. Lines, shapes, colors, and textures are as central to my work as is the process of creating them. Moving between abstract elements and familiar structures allows my work to echo the representational through symbolic formalism. This "Delta Daydreams" series focuses on my experience in the Mississippi Delta. A time spent surrounded by a dark, mysterious nature, seemingly suspended in time, and drenched in water inspired an investigation of body and landscape.
