Artist Statement
I employ facts specific to my life—the cracks that grow along my bedroom wall in a span of three years are transferred into a sprawling wall drawing, increasing and decreasing in scale to symbolically represent a map of my existence. The texture of my skin is printed directly onto blank super 8 film, creating a rapid moving image of black and white of lines and texture. This short film blurs the line between recognition of the familiar and anonymity. Each piece is determined by systems of repetition based on the process of the material; when multiplied, a brush stroke of beeswax becomes a featherlike growth expanding from a corner across a wall.

Shifting between scales, my work examines the map like quality of a fingerprint to the cross section of an invented landscape based on the texture of my skin. It is a constant movement toward and away from a finished thing.
