Artist Statement

Exclusivity is a dominating occurrence in our lives. The separation of our society by race and class is mirrored in our zoning laws and exploited by commercial development and political policy. The pursuit of social change, inclusiveness, and equality is an exercise in interconnectedness rather than division. There are parallels between the built environment we live within and the continued political policies of explicit marginalization and oppression.

This painting is from an ongoing series titled "Spatial Change/Social Equity." The visceral paint application pushes back against narratives of exclusivity and policies of exploitation. Hard-edged geometry is utilized to silence while gestural marks are empowered voices of opposition. These paintings emphasize the inherent flatness of painting and compositionally represent the challenges of spatial and social separation.
