MSAC Individual Artist Award (IAA)2019
Artist StatementThe paintings in my Interference series deal with the disorienting nature of personal and technological change. I am particularly interested in the degradation of mind and body over time and how those effects can be envisaged by fragments of figures and landscape morphing with digitized interference patterns and geometric bands of color. Through this intertwining of representation and abstraction, I am searching for a new language to visualize my own personal experiences with loss, illness, change and motherhood. Though these paintings represent a dissolution of the self, I also view them as a celebration of the beauty of life's shifting impermanence.
