“My work explores perception and memory—how the information received through each is fragmented yet made whole through our bodies, oscillating between dissolution and synthesis. In this oscillation, disparate categories are reconciled—real vs. contrived, drawing vs. painting, ironic vs. sincere, harmonious vs. dissonant—knit into a comprehensive vision.”
