In my practice, I explore methods to fracture and reconfigure pictorial space. This I deploy as a means to describe and digest the dense compression and specialization of time in contemporary culture. In our moment, we are inundated with visual information that renders our ability to understand and process experience, as well as our sense of time and perspective, haphazard if not indeed skewed. My paintings begin here and assert the idea of looking at and through such a fractured pictorial space. I then begin to question how figural information might exist within this frame.
