there are no rules. that is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. go against the rules, or ignore the rules. that is what invention is about. HELEN FRANKENTHALER
A large part of the goals deeply embedded in seams of my practice consist of escapism. I respect my artist ancestry and I often look to it for guidance, but it is most important to me that the clarity of the immediate lineage, remains a mystery.
I work across mediums ultimately to advance and inform the others. There is no separateness between the life of a sculpture and a painting. I make them from each other and for each other; places for my things and things for my places.
I find myself interested in the body; distortion, discomfort and societal expectations of the female body image. Confusion and ambiguity work in tandem to encourage a visual sustainability about my pictures.
I retain an intense curiosity between interiority and exteriority, which plays a role in my thing-making as well; capturing table tops or legs, crevasse or bulges.
Look at any inspired painting. It's like a gong sounding; it puts you in a state of reverberation. -Philip Guston
