The Profits of Insomnia



In this series my focus is to draw and paint in such a manner that they are at once formal depictions and a shattering of this illusion. By bringing these forms together and then abstracting them through variant brushstrokes or areas of overlap, I hope to disassociate the viewer’s preconceived understanding of the materials. Reinterpreting the objects, I allow free association to occur in the spaces between the literal. They are at once an expression of depth on a two-dimensional plane, and a shattering of this illusion. Without the ability to perceive these objects in space, we are unable to categorize these objects. Doors are opened to appreciate a new way of seeing their formal beauty, extending beyond a formal depiction into a nontraditional reconfiguration..
