is a visual artist living and working in Arkansas.
My work is an extension or contemplation on the act of perception–lines of demarcation are only contextual. Exploring the space where the viewer simultaneously accepts two contradictory ideas provides the foundation. I use basic geometry as a point of departure, creating overlapping, incomplete, and illusory shapes in various stages of flux. Squares fade into squares; circles are completed in a two-way mirror’s reflection; a rectangle is created by smaller rectangles. Two-dimensional planes engage and interrogate the three-dimensional space in which they sit while the three-dimensional surfaces flatten reflections into two-dimensional images. The shapes visually weave with one another, simultaneously acknowledging and undoing their respective qualifiers. I am interested in the liminal spaces that we occupy and how we change in relation to different environments while remaining a solidified, identifiable self. Being able to pass or acclimate to certain scenarios draws out the in-between space that separate those distinctions. I investigate this fluctuation, balancing on the fence that divides opposing signifiers.
