Artist Statment:

In this work, I have been exploring the notions of constructing landscapes from physical and digital memory. I have been interested in the role humans have on impacting our surroundings, as well as the way we see and remember places. I want to create spaces or places to explore and think: slow down and consider the place we live around. 

With the recent pandemic of COVID-19, I have become limited to working in my 400 square foot studio apartment. The quarantine has shifted my work from larger mixed media ceramic work to mixed media painting and drawing. The inability to access school studio has made me consider my work in painting more seriously, while also spending more time slowing down and looking at the places we live around.
