Works On Paper 
Little Problems

These works form the language of my painting. During lockdown these painterly experiments were my saving grace. They were little problems I could solve in a world where it seemed nothing could be solved. The uncertainty of our inner worlds and more collectively the world at large aligns with the unpredictability of the medium. I just needed to feel calm and gain some confidence in myself by solving something. Despite the larger obstacles that were in my mind insurmountable, these problems I could manage. Why we create what we do goes beyond aesthetic decisions, its more about hope and finding resolution no matter what the scale.
