“Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to was never there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. Where is there a place for you to be? No place... Nothing outside you can give you any place... In yourself right now is all the place you've got.”
  Flannery O'Connor

My most recent collection of paintings is an abstract exploration of environment. The idea that place is within you-not without has inspired a body of work focused on narrating my spaces through memory and emotion. The paintings are rooted in a familiarity and reverance to traditional landscape, while paying tribute to minimalism and abstraction. The exhibition questions our perceptions of reality and interpretations of place. The work is autobiographical yet familiar; connecting the viewer to the art object and creating a dialogue between artist and audience.

The main goal of this exhibition is to document past and present experience while still engaging and inspiring the viewer.
