My paintings approach landscape as an artificial construction—simultaneously real and fake. They respond to my immediate surroundings, subjectively layered with associations and memories. Their acrylic and linen surfaces form a plastiglomerate, on which I combine techniques from Chinese scrolls, vintage décor, and postwar abstraction.”
