Artist Statement

Exploring queer connections to landscapes, the portals, caves, and bodily holes interchangeably represent connection to the outside world which penetrates the bodies. Contour drawings and loose paint handling allow blur between separate entities, both bodies and landscape. Painted glass and wood cut in the shape of contour drawings hang casting shadows. The glass grounds of the paintings lend a skin-like quality to the paint enhancing the bodily effect of the landscape. While some landscape figures painted on glass or wood, I paint on traditional linen canvas. Painted frames double as portals and signs with ideographic markings.  The subversively sexual nature of the unclothed female body creates a sense of parodic gaze of fetishizes landscapes which contradicts ideas the brutality of abstract mark making.
