Through my paintings, I construct environments. I build abstracted
spaces with skewed perspectives that feel like they could exist in
reality using elements of architecture. My environments speak to both
dreamlike worlds and industrial landscapes. They are inspired by
architectural spaces that feel inhabitable, yet uneasy. I aim to depict
the indecision of wanting to enter or stay away, the difficulty of
returning to the past or leaving it behind. For me, home isn't captured
by a picture of the house I grew up in. Calling a structure my home
feels both comforting and unstable. This tension simultaneously
surrounds, and closes off, welcomes and turns away.
