Artist Statement 2018
I paint. I also build installations and make moving images.
The act of painting is a method of thinking through ideas of space and time. I'm interested the full vocabulary of the materials I use, and spend a lot of time nerding out on the hows, whats and whys of painting.
In the studio I make models. I cut, fold and tape together paper print outs of landscapes (for example), making little stileben (still-life). Using these models as sources, my paintings become multiple representations of space: the space of the object, as well as the space within the images the models are made out of.
