I take a both/and approach to art making by using both abstract and representational forms with minimal structures and decorative elements. Working from the philosophies of William Morris and Kazimir Malevich, I seek to elevate viewer's physical and phenomenological experience.
Recognizing how Minimalists utilized scale, I physically arranged, and built around the freestanding architectural walls in the gallery to create a monumental object. The grand scale of the work allowed the object to also be experienced by the viewer as an installation space. The decorative details within the work created a tension between the intimate and the overwhelming experience of the work, reinforcing the ideas of my exhibit Both/And.
