I combine theatrical color transitions and textures with undulating shapes associated with natural systems to explore existential questions rooted in the concept of transformation. Like the invented world of a cartoon, I strive to construct pieces that act as a fabrication of reality, blurring the lines between dimensions while maintaining the invented boundaries of our perception. As we age, these “buoys” mark the unseen realities of others, while anchoring us to the comfort of superficial direction.
