collage and white paint on rag paper
17 x 14 in.
Positioned as an art historian and independent curator, my practice draws upon ideas surrounding architecture, space, and absent or obscured histories related to a particular location. My current work, collectively entitled WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE, approaches space as subject, asking: what can be removed to reveal more? Using architectural or built space as a vehicle towards visualizing possible provisional, mental, and/or relational spaces — that which can’t be seen yet absolutely exists. Through a process of marking, obscuring and isolating images, relationships among space and object are subverted to reveal the boundless, often uncertain and unseen spaces that inform and are informed by our material and built environment.
