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 concerned with space; I concerned with the simple process of transforming the two into the three dimensional and the tensions between the dimensions. While my exploration into the tension between the two and three dimension planes began through painting, it has now moved into experiments with collage and mixed media. Through painting with watercolor over pasted pages from auction catalogues, I attempt to create a three dimension plane through introducing color and shadow. Since I use a great deal of water in the application of the paint, the pasted sheets buckle and consequently draw attention to the surface of the painting. Here, I am working though how much I can work the surface of the two dimensional plane, while attempting to create three dimensional space.
My concerns with space began as a child, when I constantly craved a space, a room which was mine alone. As a child, I also visited auction houses with my father and developed an affinity for antique chairs. Later on, I realized that a two dimensional plane, divided horizontally into two colors, did not give the illusion of three dimensionality until I introduced a chair and so the exploration into special relations began.
