Artist Statement

My practice is inspired by the myth and anecdote in medieval and renaissance art and architecture. Carrying a similar atmosphere, my paintings utilizing multiple picture planes and precarious perspectives. The composition varies, ranging from film-still, landscape, to a frame-inside-a frame format where the painting has an awareness of its own boundaries. Beyond the relationship between light, shapes, and color, my paintings aim to distort physical and psychological space.
