My interdisciplinary work weaves through an interpretation of my surroundings by blending personal narratives and structures. The figures I draw or paint have representational forms but are distorted in a loose rendering manner, playing with mark making, line weight, transparent fields of color, and experimentation through screen printing.
While at Headlands
During my stay at the Headlands I would like to expand on one painting series titled HWY1. Referencing a trip to Muir Woods in January 2020, they start with environmental surroundings (landscape, trees, the Highway 1 logo, sea life, and plants). To capture a place, I collect as much data as I can, by either iphone photos, drawing in plein air, or simple titles to later visualize into full paintings. I insert my library of figures and landscapes, and develop an open-ended composition. I hope to re-imagine this process by going on walks around the Marin Headlands and collecting new solitude.
In addition, I would like to accompany my paintings with an edition of four handmade books, consisting of woodcut prints, photography, and hand-painted pages.
