RHYTHMS EVOLVING II

(July 2014)

I do not want to take up too much space in the world. I challenge this in creating large monoprint paintings on paper. I tease out image and text from the surface, and embrace mistakes, however vulnerable it leaves me.

This body of work is a testament to living with anxieties and insecurities.

Spectrum of Anxiety, a series of monoprints:

(June 2014)

I create work inspired by my steady stream of consciousness, thoughts riddled with anxiety, fear, bliss, hope, and loneliness, sometimes felt all at once. 

To make sense of the chaotic thoughts in my mind, I organize them in sets of series or spectrums. I reveal and conceal text and narratives within the monoprints through a delicate layering of mixed materials, a layering that also represents the emotions I experience. Colors and textures in the work emerge from intuitive decisions. The ambiguity and ephemeral nature of the work encourages viewers to reflect, and together, find a collective inner self.
