I seek to find the place where representation and abstraction coexist. Using both my own configurations and images of constructed space, I create sleek surfaces that convey purity and refinement, while also creating the illusion of space on a two-dimensional surface. The ambiguity of the imagery invites viewers to project their own narratives onto the picture plane.
