Class of 2018


My studio practice is based in expanded field of drawing. In the intersection of drawing, animation and installation I translate numerous marks and erasures that describe changes in my everyday environment and my experience of transition. I define my inner world through the play of light and shadows, as a metaphor of what is empirically known and unknown. My inquiry starts with the questions: who defines whom, if the final form exists or if its essence is in constant flux. Time is an essential element in my process of seeing and transcription. Through the process of drawing time and place are intertwined and manifested as and through movement. The final work exists in a dialogue between drawing on paper and hand drawn animations, interactive drawing installations and performance.
