Hier und jetzt
The title, “Here and Now”, references the spontaneity of my recent works. For this exhibition I will be creating a new site-specific installation composed of salvaged materials, which I will alter with drawn and painted marks. I view this exhibition as an extension of my new “Wingspan” paintings, for which I do not have a preconceived image in mind. Inspired by dance, I begin with an intuitive movement off of the canvas and record that same movement in paint.
