KNOW THY SELF is the driving force of all my work and being as a whole, as everything is interconnected.
My work explores individuality within universal consciousness.
Everything in consciousness is vibrating energy in process of transformation.
There are similar patterns that occur in molecular structure, nature and universe, reflecting the relationship of the microcosm to the macrocosm. The work is grounded in my meditative process. The process is psychological mapping of intellectualizing emotions.
Directing energy in form of color to capture movement in time, symmetry in abstraction, creating order in chaos, transforming the metaphysical to the physical. As an alchemist manifesting the unseen.
Painting allows to channel flow states in pure expression transcending all boundaries.
Defined by what I love, contemplating psyche and soma, science, nature, social economic movements, mythology and perception and its ability to be fluid depending on its environment.
I’m interested in transcending the obvious physicality and diving deep into the subtlety of the being, where silence exists in between spaces allowing for new dimensions to manifest. Making my own paints from pigments, metals, semi-precious stones, and phosphorescent for their aesthetic and energetic qualities and ability to absorb, reflect, and refract light. The paint vary in consistency, texture, density, translucency with an ethereal and earthly quality as it is the most primitive evidence of human intelligence dating back to thousands of years found in cave paintings. I intuitively pour color, followed by precise brush work of layering, building depth with intent. Working with a central focus, as nucleus of self, moving in relation to environment. Gathering and harnessing energy, grounded in my femininity. I paint outdoors in the middle of NYC open to its vibration, its a demanding physical engagement, a ritual of sorts. I equate light to knowledge, as it has the power to alter perception, and my paintings transform according to varied light. The work is an experience for the viewer as it shifts depending on the light it is exposed. Dichotomy coexists in all, as every end is a beginning, light and darkness, yin and yang, feminine and masculine, all opposite sides of the same coin. The paintings below have their double counterpart, day light and UV light. Enjoy!
