My recent work manifests itself through various modes of production and analysis. My work’s inspiration and, I believe, its strength lies in my address of painting’s fertile and extensive history as well as its current, shifting position within contemporary culture. Whether it is the use of traditional painting mediums, digital technologies, or other techniques, I am in search for modes of image- and object making that question the meaning, process, and definition of contemporary abstraction.
