My paintings investigate the visual interplay that happens at the edges between one thing and another. I’m interested in exploring these quiet and ambiguous spaces that occur at the borders between things: the horizon line between sky and Earth, the edges of architectural and built spaces, a painted line defining space, the boundaries between selves and others. These in between spaces sometimes appear clear and definite, sometimes gradual and blended, and sometimes they are visibly fraught with struggle. For me, this is a metaphor for the spaces of connection and disconnection between people, exploring our struggle to negotiate with others and to mediate how we come together or don’t come together.”
