What happens when we set aside the need to represent what we see and instead respond with how we feel? To me, life is fragmented and layered, a mosaic of experiences interwoven with reflection and intuition: the places we visit, the homes we live in, the countries we explore - each overlapping and influencing one another.
Blending contemporary and classical approaches to painting and composition, I examine how human experience, place and personal memory affect ones perception of self. I am interested in the interpretation of and the interactions with the spaces that surround me. What memories or feelings do these places spark and what sort of energy do they project? As an artist, I investigate whether someone can access and experience a new view of the world through my work and how I can create a new space using my art. My work explores whether, through art, we can share our individual perceptions.
Using a vibrant display of geometric abstract paintings, I explore the concept of spatial identity, translating how place and experience uniquely intertwine. I use abstraction as a way to move through and define the 2-dimensional picture plane, and color to express a certain idea or mood. Perspective, saturation and transparency, together with techniques of glazing and layering, create an illusion of depth and space, while visually conveying the fusion of memories and experiences.
