My work examines contrasting relational concepts through the visual language of formalism. Dichotomous relationships drive my aesthetic and conceptual interests: subtle distinctions between exterior and interior spaces, material contrasts between urbanism and nature, the ephemeral physicality of iconographic vocabulary... My work is an attempt to expose glimpses of these relationships.

As I haven't been actively making art since 2017 for a plethora of reasons, the exhibition will display the images you can see below and include an interactive artist's talk with founders Ashley and Kate about the work and concepts.
This body of work investigates the relationship between personal and public spaces and the systems organizing spatial distribution.
The destructive transformation of domestic materials re-contextualizes them as simply material; similarly, the re-presentation of ubiquitous spatial markers challenges the existing allocation and management of space.
Proportionate representations of road signs and markings presented in a neutral environment draw attention to the scale and instructive quality of objects all but ignored in their conventional locations.
The juxtaposition of carpeting, constructive woods, and household paints allows for the comparison between the spatial management of outdoor and indoor environments, suggesting a reconsideration of the everyday spaces we take for granted.
This series of work explored formalist spatial compositions through street motifs.
The visual language developed in this series has informed much of the work that I am still elaborating on today.
Home and street materials were juxtaposed in an exploratory manner in attempts to remove familiarity from commonplace objects.
The dichotomous relationship between “interior” and “exterior” spaces defined a thematic tension between the roles of these visual objects as real objects and psychological symbols.
A transient installation at the opening of the second showing of S|P|A|C|E|S.
A parking space was blocked off with painted carpet lines on the roof of the building’s parking garage. Viewers could see the installation through the windows at the exhibition.
This loose series of work expanded upon an iconographic lexicon of visual-objects representing exterior spaces.
Work was presented in juxtaposed orientations, inverting the positioning of floor and wall elements so as to dissociate the object as image from its associated visual function.
A continuation of exploring conceptual and formal elaborations of lines organized as space.
Some exploratory visual renderings of non-visual cognitive spaces. Cluttered, once-familiar rooms coalesce via mental collage — groggy recollections of touch and space are translated into crude lines.
Perspectival logic bends to the whim of faulty memories as an image is quickly reconstructed on the page.
Visual experiments in process and technology.
Assorted photography / visual inspiration taken during the onset of my fascination with street textures and compositional structures.
Narrowly-framed perspectives are used to flatten expanded spatial elements into graphic lines.
