About The Artwork

This is an external processing of my time spent in Tokyo. I traveled the city to find different kinds of tools, textures, and colors to experiment with in my painting process. The result is an abstract landscape created with thick brushstrokes, scrapes of paint, and raised stenciled dots that network together. In their conversation they begin to create a landscape, but then fall back apart into impressions of abstract paint.

The illusions of familiarity we hold onto for comfort can keep us from something we don't realize we are passionately in love with. Illusion and realism stunted my understanding of art until I experienced the beauty in the way my body, hands, and mind express. I sensed a love for my natural state. When I painted in the jungle for a summer, my illusions of failure, sustained by self-sabotage, fell apart. I let myself reconnect to things I loved — exploring and painting in nature. This event opened up abstract painting for me. Through abstraction and color I destabilize the illusion of “a place”. When paint has space to be paint (oozing, pooling, dripping, gritty, bright, and slimy smooth alchemical sludge) it can be unsettling, especially after its history of realism. Though it can be agitating, abstraction celebrates all of the qualities of paint. In the same way, we can make room to value our intrinsic characteristics through the unnerving acknowledgement of ourselves. I paint nature because it is the environment that sustains life, and from it we can resonate the life within ourselves. Nature tunes us, and in dissonance exposes our illusions. It speaks to our natural state below the ego. As nature calls us to journey through our boarders, we discover who we innately are. In admiring these findings we can make a place for ourselves. Slipping in and out of the familiar through abstract mark making, I draw parallels between nature and human nature in hopes that viewers will discover and cherish more of their inner-landscapes.
