My work considers questions of cultural migrations, margins, and notions of interiority that have been engineered through history, and how we experience this cultural slippage between the present and the past. I cull references from colonial imagery, surface design, Sci-Fi and digital information culture, and symbolic forms of mythic nature that clash with synthetic nature. My process uses some variation of paint media, cut paper, layered drawing techniques, and distilling images through mapping software. I combine these practices to create spatial constructions in which romanticized notions of the past, must exist next to the consequences that were produced as the present. I am interested in how hybridity is both a literal and metaphoric gesture to create complex narratives and spaces. My research focuses on mining representations of gender and capitalism, to consider the lineages of identity as constructions, and reading historical texts in relation to current socio-political events.
