My recent body of work uses cut paper layered with soot and encaustic to trace the gradual
reconstruction of a city after a natural disaster. These salvaged materials are reassembled into
forms that are both timeless and transient.
I am interested in painting as a lens through which to reconcile my perception of the corporeal world
with intangible notions of intense human emotion, experience and meaning. It is an understanding
of art as a treatise on human nature.
As an installation artist and painter, I have worked with many materials. For my sand painting
series, I have created nearly 1000 spontaneous, ephemeral sand paintings and currently creating similar
works on canvas
