Artist Statement
 

Artist Statement

 

Using traditional art and everyday materials, including plastic sheeting and masking tape, I meld imagery culled from Western and Eastern traditions, including geometric abstraction and Islamic art, architectural sources from the 19th and 20th century New York landscape and Ottoman traditions, into drawing installations and miniature inspired drawings. The work takes form as series of small drawings, larger scrims and intimate duct taped in plastic space cum “shelter in place” safe rooms.
