Abstractions

 
 

The process of abstracting is incredibly physical; I work in oil paint and oil bar, breaking the canvas into color and line. I scrape, cut, drag and paint the surface, organizing my work according to the logic of microorganisms examined at a macro scale. By paralleling accumulation with mutation, I create a chaotic translation of our contemporary environment and the disconnect between the accumulation and reduction of stuff: waste, objects, news, information, nature.
