“My practice is interested in the process of perception. While my exhibitions and projects may vary in medium, my practice is always keenly focused on the intricacies of a viewing subject. Using immersive installations or optically charged objects, I am interested in activating an awareness of the embodied experience of art. Whether drawing from art historical movements such as Impressionism, or more contemporary movements like Op-art or Relational Aesthetics, I seek to create intimate, multi-sensory experiences. By blurring the lines between art and viewer, I endeavor to create a space for wonder and healing.”
