I think of my art practice as a vessel for memories of past traumas. I use imagery, colour and technique to charge my paintings with empathy and present them in mixed media installations that encompass the viewer. In order to convey both personal narratives and connect with a larger context, I depict my body in foreign spaces.
I often paint figurative work, at life scale. The installation of this work immerses the viewer and in doing so, opens a dialogue about the survivorship of displaced people. My work strives to be charged with empathetic visions, reified into mixed media installations often involving painting and performance.
