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.
With an interest in gesture, attitude and action, I draw and paint in order to understand myself and my desires. Exploring t‚Äčhe relatio‚Äčnship between representational and figurative drawing, my work pushes formal aspects of painting. The loose materiality of spray paint, airbrush, and charcoal lend themselves to describing the human body: flesh and mind. Intelligence, communication, morality, and behavior are all important thematically. Conceptually the work conveys a fluidity between control and lack thereof, both in the execution of the idea, and the idea itself. With this in mind ‚ÄčI sometimes discover myself flirting organically with abstraction.”
