Using found imagery, painting language, and perspectival techniques I build environments where forms exist and interact. The process of accumulating imagery and materials emerges in a magpie aesthetic that is at times both melancholy and nostalgic. Using media traditionally marketed to women allows me to deconstruct patterns in the representation of the female body, desirable living spaces, and consumable products, while conceding that simulacra is often indiscernibly intertwined with real experience. The creation of unexpected juxtapositions via image and material explores the way we read texts and exploits the strange connection between our tactile world and the realm of commodified images.
