I am interested in the relationship between memories and architectural spaces. Memories can be glamorized and distorted. Especially, when we consider the spaces we think we know, each has different perspectives in one's mind. Whether it is our childhood home, our neighborhood or our city, the meanings of these places are contained in the space of one's memories. I am eager to preserve these traces in my art. Recollecting my memories by re-creating them, I capture specific impressions that survive the passage of time. Like a mirage, memories are temporal and shift through time.
I am interested in exploring the relationship between forgotten or invisible images, history, locational meaning, architectural and landscape space through hand-pulled screen-printing. Memories are motivating sources from my surroundings, including optical illusions and identities that we may or may not ‘see.’ My art practice engages chance and risk through researching histories and invisible phenomena to create new explorations in past and present landscapes. I hope to further develop site-specific installations through hand-pulled silkscreen printing, using local and historic images tooled for the individuality of each locational pattern, creating fleeting cultural memories. “The Metamorphosis,” written by Franz Kafka, inspires me in the vision that what we think can be manipulated or altered in real-time. The use of pixelated images via analog processes reflects our digital age, the breakdown of physical memory, and our constantly changing relationship to meaning and reality. Memories can be glamorized and distorted. Whether it is our childhood home, neighborhood, or city, the implications of these places are contained in the space of one’s relationship to the past.
My multi-disciplinary art crosses boundaries between painterly printmaking and sculpture. Through hand-pulled silkscreen prints, I create abstract pixelated images depicting the breakdown of physical memory and our constantly changing relationship with meaning and reality. Memories of certain spaces can be glamorized and distorted whether it is our childhood home, neighborhood, or city. My practice engages choice through researching my family histories and invisible phenomena to create new explorations of abstraction, time, and landscape.
