← Return to From Afar: 2020 Senior Art Exhibition
Over the past year, I have explored the relationships between people and their spaces. Within my oil paintings, there is an unspoken intimacy that reveals who we are at home or in nature when no one is around. Interior spaces tend to be reflections of those who create them; when people see my work, I want them to imagine the person who inhabits each space even if they are not present in the piece. In my paintings, what is hidden is revealed as I allow for the physical world and the mind to unite. Through the manipulation and slight obscurity of form, as well as the use of bright colors and familiar patterns, unsettling realities begin to emerge.
