ARTIST STATEMENT: My work consists of small mixed media drawings on vellum and large oil paintings on canvas. Each piece stems from the question: “Where does the singular experience/memory stand in relation to the universal?” I cull imagery from deeply personal memories as well as public sources including the internet and print materials. Animals, houses, pattern, the female figure, and highly saturated/desaturated hues coalesce as the individual and common are woven together on the page. Treated with equal weight, images originating from both the shared and the private are forced to take part in the creation of an alternative dialogue with history and meaning where the collective is not privileged over the individual or vice versa.
