I am interested in exploring and asking the question, “What lingers in the silences we hold between each spoken word?” I believe this is where our true emotions live. I am aiming to excavate and examine these silences, the ones that have been handed down generation after generation and the ones acquired as we maneuver through the world. I am attempting a new way to interpret the unsaid, attempting to reach viewers in ways words cannot.
I have been refining this style and language since 2012. The exploration of this nonverbal language begins with me confronting and questioning my silences in writing. I confront experiences, feelings, and thoughts from life and those that have been shared from other people’s perspectives. Employing expressive minimalism as my vehicle; line making, atmospheric color, and texture, I invite the viewer to investigate the unspoken silence that lingers between words.
