My work examines the visual and corporeal understanding of space. As a starting point, I take an uncompromising first-person perspective that forces viewers to see compositional elements as either connected or estranged.
In my paintings I fragment the compositions with body parts, such as nose shadows and arms. These elements obstruct the view, but also orient the viewer within an embodied perspective. The body orients vision in space. And from the interplay between space, sight and body, I paint. Working with dimensions such as wingspan, body height, and hand length, I paint in life-size so that my actions while painting enact bodily movements.
