The work for my MFA show, Symbolon, was the result of my search for a vocabulary of personal metaphors based in nature. Personal transformation and growth were central themes to this body of work. Through painting, I sought to convey a sense of displaced internal landscape. Painting became a way in which I could work through problems in search for hope and clarity. In my process, the canvas became symbolic of the body or a container in which I placed my interior conflict, questions, doubts and exorcised confusion about my life journey. Images for this work were triggered by memory from my early life. In each painting I found personal iconography relating to an unstable nomadic life journey, and painting became my method of suturing my pain, loss, and insecurities together.
