Hailing from Missouri, I received a BFA in studio art at the University of Dayton, OH. When I decided it was time for an MFA, I relocated to the city to attend the New York Academy of Art in TriBeCa. I now live in Brooklyn, painting full time. My process reappropriates traditional techniques wherein I interpret underpainting in the manner that a commercial printer would. A limited palette of cyan, magenta, yellow and black defines the output. The four transparent colors, layered one on top of the other, mimic the oscillated output of an ink jet printer. The finished product hangs like a tapestry, floating away from the wall like a movie screen on a summer night.
My paintings exist in an over-lap of nostalgia and social media. They explore how the photograph functions as cultural memory. Through a re-realization of technical narrative, I deconstruct familiarity and meaning to better understand their consequences. The dimension of my painting is based on two media measurements: 4:3 and 16:9. The standard 4:3 is the oldest ratio used in the first silent films. Today most smartphones and HD televisions are delineated with a 16:9 ratio.
