My work is about the translation of sound to visuals. I listen to a wide range of music and work in a stream-of-consciousness manner. I used to state what songs I was listening to but no longer want to put the audience under that subjectivity. I find it much more satisfying to hear what people experience when looking at my work.
My focus, in all of my artworks, is always women. I think the female form and face is one that offers diversity and a variety of options. My piece on display in the show, Oblivion, is one conveying emptiness and endlessness. The colors used are neutral, meant to make the viewer look deeper at the detail within the woman’s face.
