The work below draws upon the forms, colors, and sounds of the natural world suspending them in a state transition. Suggesting the skewed reality and altered consciousness of hallucinations, dreams, and memories, the video installation and paintings look to transport the viewer into highly immersive experiences.
The work included in the exhibition uses sound and paint to trap, isolate, and transform natural stimuli. Much like an electronic musician might sample a beat and transform it into something new, paint and sound are used to "sample" part of a visual or auditory element and repeat, alter, and suspend it according to the subject’s vocal and anatomical cues.
The result is an image or sound that grows through a system of atmospheric channel-like extensions. Reflecting on our modern cultures relationship to manicured natural form, this work pushes and pulls between the raw and the streamlined, the wild and the controlled. The end result looks to provide the viewer with a system for reflection, a structure for the eyes and the ears to wander and invent.
