While many artists have turned to representation to embody life in 2021, I use abstraction with disjunctive marks and colors to convey the cacophony of political/cultural currents that surround me. Like musical polyphony, my work involves multiple independent “voices”- glimpses from my environment combined with vestiges of gestures that suggest fragmented memories – which I layer to create painted universes. My compositions echo the spatial complexities of landscape – underwater reflections and intersections of nature and architecture. Fragments float in fluid, veiled spaces. Contemporary dance provides a rhythmic metaphor.
