As one takes photos to remember, I consider artmaking a conduit of memory and of dreams. My work centers on a subjective point of view by emphasizing personal perspectives. I work with a limited palette. Color becomes a field, the entire expansion. Printmaking remains the root of my color theory process. By neutralizing a color with another, I support and distract an eye; I imitate depth on an otherwise flat surface. In turn, my practice interrogates the notion of representational art. Creating an image, seen or imagined, forces the canvas to become a space to fill up, thus redefining the dimensionality. As a result, my landscapes are figures of my own memory: These depths wish to hold my audience in a gaze; take a step closer, linger.
