    With watercolor on paper, I create dense and detailed organic formations of vibrant and colorful geometric shapes. Beginning as small meticulous lines and delicate washes of watercolor, the imagery grows outwards in a slow meditative process of repetition and layering, rhythmically twisting forward and away, revealing depth as it overlaps. Thematically, these structures are topographies of wonder and belonging. The imagery originates from fragmented childhood memories and present-day everyday surroundings: a web of sunlight on my grandmother’s bedroom floor, crystalline formations on frozen snow. I am searching for moments at the edges of things, imaginary, impossible, made of time and memory, landscapes of the mind. I am drawn to the immediacy of watercolor and to the reflection of the hand in the work: irregular and flawed and of the moment. My curiosity about neural pathways and the working of memory is reflected in the construction of the imagery—repeated, layered, obliterated, resurfaced—appearing suspended over silent emptiness. The fragility and fluidity of the watercolor speaks to the ephemeral and immaterial quality of memory, and also of identity, while the large physicality of the pieces is seemingly solid yet made up of vulnerable moments that can vanish at any time. The play between micro and macro, the fragility of the single line against the physicality of the whole, and the fluid interconnectedness of memory, time, and place, drives the work.
