Paintings on Paper Emerging Artist in Residence Penn State University
My paintings feature furniture and other household objects as a way to contemplate abstraction and representation. As their titles suggest, these paintings depict actual residences. Created in pairs, these paintings initially strive to faithfully render the objects in these spaces against the emphasis on the hand of the artist. The coexistence of abstraction and representation, along with the liminal hybrid of the two, serve to orient the viewer, inviting them to construct their own narrative of the scene.
