Joan Mitchell Center Residency, 2021
By continually observing, questioning, and reexamining my environment, I am able to put forth objects that allow us to reimagine the way we see and think about things. For the past couple of years I have been keenly interested in portraiture, and more specifically, the possibility of a portrait succeeding. I found myself wondering, what could an inanimate object really convey, or depict, about something as complex as an individual?”
