Artist Statement

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been drawn to mediums that force me to give up control. Being drawn to abstract but having grown up practicing realism, I find these mediums offer an element of happenstance that gives me a bit of a thrill that I don’t always find when I know exactly what I’m drawing and what the end result should look like. It forces me to abandon the control I’m used to having and it becomes a more collaborative process with the medium itself. Like the idea behind raku pottery–when you let nature and the process have influence over the piece, there’s beauty in the resulting ‘imperfections.’ Recently plaster has caught my eye—I love that it’s such a clean, organic medium with lots of room for variation and that it only allows a short window of time to receive direction before it cements.

This collection of work focuses on the relationship between the creamy, matte surface of the plaster & the brighter, more reflective paint spilling up from beneath, as well as how their shadows & reflections interact with different lighting & weather. They are a nod to the idea of scratching below the surface to reveal a brighter, lighter, more reflective version of ourselves. An idea that, for me, greatly correlates with the major reset we’ve had this year. Just like each scratch was made and subsequently filled one at a time, we as a collective are taking each moment/day/week/month one at a time, and some of us may even be filling our own scratches one at a time. The process is long, it takes patience, sometimes it’s uncomfortable, but ultimately it produces a beautiful, organic, meditative work of art.
