As an artist, I am intrigued by the idea of challenging the audience to see more than the original object or inspiration - to overcome intuition and encourage people to think more deeply about what they are experiencing. Through painting, I hope to help people see and experience the world more fully.
My art practice involves taking familiar objects or scenes and creating something new while maintaining a connection to the original. The focus is to create a connection with the subject without accurately replicating it visually. By focusing on the negavtive space in my initial concept, I want the viewer to access the unknown and discover the subject matter with a unique perspective.
