The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
I am interested in the rise of nationalism and the alt-right as well as colonialism & post-colonialism, history, the heritage industry, and the politics of representation. I draw these elements together using a mixture of historical and contemporary sources to create dialogues surrounding fiction and reality.
The paintings refer to modernism’s preoccupation with flatness to negate or affirm the pictorial space and to create tension between the background / foreground.
