Artist Statement

As time passes distance forms and that something becomes harder to reach, blurry, less physical. I am interested in visually translating this distance; expressing abstraction as a concrete form.

My artistic research focuses on print media as a means to expose the passage of time and its consequential sensations of loss and absence. While investigating the physical and psychological experiences of absence, loss, and uncertainty I consider the body, space, and place. Physically translating the abstract marks of passing moments left on landscapes and built environments or of a body’s gestures allows me to make connections to the phenomema of time.
