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.
In my work, I explore themes of comfort and horror, memory and forgetting, and transformation and habit. The surface of a bed is a place where one both experiences and escapes reality, a physical connection between dreaming and waking life. Using painting and sewing, I model shallow reliefs out of used patterned bed sheets, disrupting the familiar floral patterns. While painting I work intuitively and impulsively, often referring to remembered or imagined floral imagery.
