Going to the Sun
This series was created during a month long residency at Vytlacil, which is funded by the Student's Artist League of New York. Each weekend, I took the train into NYC and spent my days exploring. These excursions became the inspiration for my studio work. A visual vocabulary of "portals" are employed in some of the paintings to suggest the potential for "going down the rabbit hole" when we encounter a new environment. Although potentially disorienting these experiences can also serve as joyful encounters which are brought on by embracing the unexpected.
