Commissioners' Choice Exhibit

Unconventional Commonalities
Show Dates – January 11 – April 2, 2023 
My work is based in installation, I focus on the relationships that pop up across series, mixing and matching pieces to create a new narrative. I explore the connection these paintings have to the viewer and the surrounding environment by releasing an individual object from the confined form of a traditional canvas. This freedom allows me to arrange the pieces into different still life configurations where the entire installation becomes the piece, exploring the idea of how the parts make up the whole. I place the raw canvas flush to the wall, rendered carefully to play with perceptions of depth and flatness. The objects I choose to paint are often discarded, mundane, or everyday experiences I come across, pulling inspiration from the world around me. 
Reception – Friday, January 13th at 6:30pm
