PUBLIC ART / INSTALLATION
There are several threads in my work- but the main threads are: public art/installation, the line between animation and drawing, the line between digital and traditional methods, and the line between abstract and figurative. I create work grounded in traditional drawing and painting. I use digital tools as a way to explore and experiment, and to reach new audiences. It is with a love of traditional media that I engage with digital tools, often developing processes that allow my mark in the work, allows some element of surprise, but also provides alternate methods of showing the work. When I painted, I created large scale, wall size paintings, which led me to creating projection art installations and works for public installation. Part of my interest in this format is that a looping animation allows the viewer to control their time with the work and it creates a contemplative space similar to the viewing of a painting. Another thread in my work is that I tend to have, inherent in all my work, a message about the human condition, often originating from personal and interpersonal experiences. All of my work is subtly autobiographical yet intended to tap into more universal sensations and experiences.
