Painting Artist Statement: I’m interested in what we gain from reconnecting with the messiness of reality and human perception. I like to experiment with concepts of perception, attention, facial recognition, optical illusion and sensemaking. I was fascinated by stereograms as a kid and often create a similar effect with painting through strokes that appear pixelated and hide images (usually faces or figures with an unusual backstory) in color and form.
