Paintings > Current Interrupted

The “Current Interrupted” series consists of paintings that have been separated into strips and reconstructed in a way to create new relationships by being put into a new context. Fluid marks are juxtaposed with the regulated rhythm of sharp horizontal line breaks, which creates a fluttering vibration and tension in the paintings. I’m interested in what happens when snippets of perception are edited, reconfigured, and compartmentalized to give them new meaning through their relationship to the whole.
