Abstract

In my practice, two and three dimensions’ masquerade as versions of one another and as parts of the other's environments. Associations are substituted for the names of colors, while objects attempt to pass as components of a painting's environment. Using color as a raw material, I conceal, confuse and demonstrate the messy nature of perception. I use painting, associative color and serious play to mimic logic, objectivity and hysteria. The speediness in the work suggests talking just fast enough to get a word in edgewise.
Because of a longstanding problem with authority, I make jokes about the serious things I wish to both criticize, imitate and understand.
