“My work is largely informed by my personal experiences and history. My creative work investigates not only seemingly mundane actions, but also statements, objects, and gestures. Through acts of reduction, I distill elements that are superfluous, thereby attempting to isolate the every day, allowing it to find its greatest potential. I want to transcend apathetic tendencies toward our relationships, our surroundings, and ourselves. I am interested in how intimate observations can enhance my perception of the seemingly mundane. For this project, I will make 60 recreations of an abstract drawing I did as a child. They will be done on quality paper and based on the original size of 5.5 x 7in. Each piece will be mixed media, using pencil, acrylic, tape, and placed in a vellum sleeve for distribution.
This series will allow me to create a large number of works based on the same original drawing. I am interested in the obsessive nature of trying to recreate something from a time of naivety.”
