ARTIST STATEMENT

In Created Spaces, these paintings are a display of how I study and render the interiority of physical space. Through painting, I have time to visually process and understand what I see while re-creating the three-dimensional boxes into flat surfaces. The conversation between painted space and actual space poses a question of what true hollowness is and what is solely a visual assumption of it. Constructed boxes placed next to painted illusions provide a window into the confusion of what is space versus what is not.
