Confine In Situ (Couch + Fridge)
The elevation of abject forms fascinates me—raw meat splayed out on a cutting board or stuffed into a tupperware container; fleshy shapes bound within a rigid cage; haphazard fabric, plastic and paper cast aside in a shopping cart. The stark contrast of chaos within structure strikes a sort of unexpected beauty. My explorations begin with strong lines and progress with thick paint. Recently, they have even become urban art interventions on discarded furniture in Los Angeles. In addition to painting, my practice involves independent curating.
