“My current exploration is to create an impression and extension of real space in ambiguous settings, containing forms reminiscent of recognizable things to give the viewer the opportunity to interpret freely the meaning of each work. I am inspired by natural movements and systems, forces, and forms, specifically celestial objects and nebulous forms. I aim to create new visuals of ambiguous forms, not referencing any one thing in particular; I hope they give the sense of an initial substance of matter that does not have any definite shape or state of being. Protomatter what I have named these forms, this ultimate basis of physical substance, before it has been given form. By creating unrecognizable, textural forms that imitate reality to an extent, there is a distance from the viewer through the ambiguity of the subject, but still a familiar element that allows for a vague conception and deep exploration.”
