Painting has always been a space for me to ask questions and conduct research.

Since 2003 I have used my work to explore intersections between art and science. I have collaborated with scientists, artists, and theorists and have developed new artistic processes to understand, reflect, and respond to ecological realities, environmental catastrophe, and the warming of our planet.

For me aesthetics are tightly linked to cultural history, ecology, and processes of inquiry. Collaborations across disciplines have enabled me to create paintings that reflect a world in flux. I have come to view the process of image-making as something that must continually evolve. If I am open to experimentation and expanding what painting is, then my work has the capacity to both reflect reality and offer new ways of looking.

I hope you find the trip meaningful.
