My work is based on memories of real and imagined landscapes that explore the intersection between architecture, topography, memory and cultural tension. By playing with scale, line, imagery, and diverse materials, I create drawings, paintings and installations that map out and emphasize the subtle and quirky topologies of precarious rural and urban spaces: they are shifty, unstable, and ambiguous, and reflect the physical, emotional, and socio-political charged spaces we live in. I document and incorporate idiosyncratic structures, colors, and shapes into my work, thus seeking the interconnectedness of people, places and things. I use drawing as a conceptual framework to create 'lines' that bridge my memories and current urban experience. It allows me to move freely between 2-D and 3-D works and create relational systems that examine and question both individual and shared spaces. These spaces consider the dynamic yet fragile relationship we have with the natural and man-made architectural forms that surround us. My travels continue to inform my work, where a shift in location, in emotion, in activity, gives rise to new ways of looking and interpreting.
