Artist Statement
 

I work with ideas within artistic research. Through formal mediums of painting and drawing, my work is project based and involves interdisciplinary investigations within artistic production.

 

What is symbiosis? I connect this question to my current project on symbiosis state. I started it in 2009. It is a project exploring and investigating how I embody the idea of symbiosis through an intensive drawing relationship interconnecting evolutionary biology, consciousness, philosophy, and the imagination. By combining experiential and rational knowledge systems together within drawings, I appropriate from visual taxonomies to create conversations between local knowledge systems of the human body and scientific classification structures.
