We are all of us hybrids. Each one of us is a walking amalgamation of experiences from a plethora of differing sources. We simultaneously embody sets of incongruities; we have experiences rooted from a range of disparate origins. Coming to terms with our own personal hybridity is a lifelong pursuit of self-definition.
Through painting, I explore this notion of hybridity. Pre-existing forms are reconfigured and combined with my own intuitive gestures into works that redefine my relationship to the world. This investigation of hybridity manifests itself as abstract fields of colour with swirling shapes that float atop the surface. Geometric cuts of saturated colour interrupt the ambiguity of space while digitally manipulated forms contribute to the sense of a visual dreamscape. These paintings explore the fluctuating boundaries between abstraction, representation, and digitally-based art.
