Abstract/Artist's Statement

This is a collection of things from my life in the past year. Some of them are things that I saw and some one them are things that I felt. Some images, like “Rachel under the bed” were in my head for months before I decided to finally paint them. Other paintings are just historical documents of beautiful things that I have seen.

This past year, I lived in a large old house. This house was the subject of a majority of these paintings. I find its spaces sad and hollow. Houses make me lonely. This house especially makes me anxious.

I think these spaces become mazes and compartments of light and habits. They are partitions between people.

There are some things that I feel embarrassed about; leaning into boys’s cars , or wishing that I could just lie underneath someone’s bed as they slept.
