On the works displayed “EXCESS” 
It was through my “RTH paint party” experience I gained access to a clothing factory, which at the end of the week a large amount of silk screen paint gets wasted, it becomes a burden on the workers to process the paint and dispose of it. I began using this paint to create my new body of work entitled “excess”  
Here are some photos of me working in that factory

With my background in design and fine art, it was natural for me to merge the two. The paintings in my series “excess” where created from the garment factory waste. The material is silk screen paint which has to be processed through industrial heaters and activated with multiple execrators. Additionally, I used fabric dies, markers, and ink found onsite. The effect is very unique, not only have these materials not been used for fine art they are mostly inaccessible. I hope to inspire the viewer with something that’s never been seen before while bringing attention to the massive waste and harm being done to our planet.

Painting is on raw canvas; it has not been stretched onto a frame yet— for shipping and dimension purposes. Painting can be re-sized and cut to dimension requested, or, into multiple pieces. Delivery on a frame is available (for additional cost). Art can be seen in NYC and Los Angeles if you’re curious about the material quality.

I am an abstract expressionistic artist based in Downtown Los Angeles. I studied Fine Art at California College of the Arts, receiving my masters and Design at FIDM. I learned the rules in order to break them, after vigorous formal training. I aim to challenge the hypocrisy of the hierarchical and myopic ideals of the fine art world by challenging human assumptions and observations. My work is a daily endeavor of lending both my art and my physicality to the viewer’s gaze. As a “personality artist”, I pull back the curtain on my artistic process and invite the viewer in for a glance at the whole creative process. This creates contrast to the illusory “crazed artist” narrative previously portrayed, nested deeply in the seemingly unapproachable gallery atmosphere I am opposing.  Working in the realms of painting, illustration, and design, I create textured, large-scale pieces using raw materials not found in typical art stores, but instead, construction projects, excess from factories, along a variety of traditional mediums such as gouache and ink. This evokes elements of spontaneity and industrialism. The art evokes contrast, both visually and conceptually. Being photographed with my art is a vulnerable act, threading my literal image into abstract expressionism. I find it necessary to integrate the artist and the art, creating a space that enables openness in a way that tests the relationships and responses to our material and tactile lives. It allows me to provoke a juxtaposition between my demure, “angelic” appearance and my towering, heavy-bodied art, with its often dark inspirations.  Working on a series, I employ a thematic method with focus on texture and form. I apply layers of different materials on multiple panels, using canvases ranging from 5-15 feet. Employing rich color pallets and dynamic movement and dimensions allows me to be at the mercy of the event—making the process itself as significant as the product. The materials I use never manifest the same way twice, while also leaving a hauntingly signature style. It’s an undertaking both physically and emotionally demanding—the reward is representative of the work you see.
