I am interested in liminality and transitional spaces within painting; preserving a fluidity between materials. My paintings combine collaged materials, such as iridescent fabrics, holographic films, glass, and cellophane with resin and paint. These materials seem liquified as the boundaries of paint are blurred. The unfixed optics and material transmutation suggest dream-like geography and organic mapping. These otherworldly abstractions relate the environment to body developing a visual language of fractured terrains, icy galaxies, and turbulent landscapes.

In my video works, I create 'in lens' effects by experimenting with prisms, reflections, scrims, and projections to evoke a dream-like and fluid atmosphere.
