Studio Resident (2011 - 2012)
Statement of Work
My paintings document the struggle to earn the joy of this seemingly limitless painting process. They’re constantly worked through, deleted, and re-worked. Throughout their execution, they confront powerful ideas that sound drab in writing, yet make up the history of painting. While I believe a thriving painting comes from the ignorance of these ideas, they are magnetic. Contained in my work is a pointed ratio between the acknowledgment of painting’s history through passion, and the ignorance of it by way of imagination.
