"Currently, I am interested in how painting can work as both a two-dimensional representation and a sculptural, immersive experience. I’m exploring this by painting on multiple shaped panels that have been collaged together to form a stacked, cluster-like arrangement that hangs off the wall at various depths. I build up my compositions by piecing together and layering found imagery and my own photos, with the end result being a combination of photorealist images of landscapes, portraits of friends, and everyday objects, as well as other colorful, distorted, and abstract imagery. By collaging my own images with found images, I am trying to find the coexistence between subject matter that is both personal and happenstance."
