The impossibility and infinity of painting are the driving factors of the painter’s practice. The images and experiences that we produce and imagine, can all exist together, lightly bound by the constraints of the real physical realm.
The introduction of the real and imagined realms presents itself through the form of a container or frame. This frame can take the form of an installation or spatial context, but are always bound by what appears to be a void, the untouched canvas, paper, glass or wood. Instead, this frees the subject from the limits of time and space, it serves as a pause, as a moment for the spectator to project their own forms.
The artist expresses subtle movement, that which, appears to have remained unchanged for centuries, the habit of a nun, botany, our flesh. She fossilizes the xilema of our existence and that which remains after.
