Artist Statement + CV
My “Futurelands” painting series brings the viewer to a place where past and future meet.
Drawing inspiration from textile patterns found on travels around the globe, I work primarily with oils (or watercolor + gouache) to combine pattern with local landscape, creating a tantalizing visual experience. The combination is also intended to make a statement about original land ownership.
I then introduce futuristic air filters as a way to address issues of air pollution, climate change, and their socioeconomic implications.
My intricate paintings are a meditative celebration of culture and nature around the world, and a reminder to preserve the planet and cultural life-forces that sustain us.
