The Interface Series is an ongoing body of mixed media sculptures that explore our sensory relationship with touchscreens and technological devices. Through scale, composition, color, and surface these pieces aim to describe the sleek objectness of a personal device in a painterly lexicon.
FOMO, the Fear Of Missing Out, is a 21st century phenomenon that can be traced back to early 2000s internet meme culture, subreddits, and social media. The acronym specifically refers to a mental state of anxiety and/or depression that arise from physically missing a social event or gathering. These feelings typically arise in response to viewing online content. These paintings meditate upon this psychological state and describe the viewpoint of the screen through abstracted portraiture.
Inverted Constructions: Berlin 2017
For seven weeks in the summer of 2017 I participated in the PICTURE BERLIN residency program. Over the course of that time I made a series of paintings and collages in response to living in the city and self-imposed material limitations.
Interface Series: Glass 2015
This series, executed in glass, serves as the initial point of departure for the ongoing mixed media Interface Series. This body of work focuses on formal relationships between surface, color, and form as a way to mimic the saturated content of a personal device.
Performances and Collaborations
I greatly value collaborations with artists that push me to consider other forms of creating and communicating outside my standard process. I have to developed a deeper dialogue in my practice through exploring a number of performances, collaborative installations, and sculptures.
