My current work is rooted in a fascination with the phenomena of light, and advanced by the investigation of painting’s compositional mechanisms. As light passes through various materials, its transformations produce a feeling of timelessness, hinting at the mysterious constitution of the mundane. Chromatic scales enable a feeling of completeness, a sense of enumerating all the data of light and thereby having better access to the whole. They tap into a system of predictability that is unavailable in the everyday. Sounds are interrupted, stimuli are filtered through preferential observation, understanding is a chaotic coagulation of sensory experiences. I am invested in utilizing the painting as a mechanical object, employing structures that minimize decision-making, paring away narrative in favor of a more elusive truth, solidifying the ephemeral.
