Each painting is made with the intention to question how we see, and what we recognize.
It is important for me to create a space of exchange between the material object of the painting and the viewer. When the works are viewed from different distances, they move between surfaces you look at and surfaces you look through.
By seeing objects as pictorial containers, I aim to emphasize the disorientation of what is inside, outside, far, close, clear, obstructed, real or fake.
I hope that if someone is able to take a step onto the stage of my painting, the narrative previously being formed through the recognizable will be slowly but surely undone. The backdrop becomes the actor, and the actor becomes the backdrop.
As a celebration that 2020 has ended and that a new year is here, FLATFILE has launched a new online program title, simply: “2021.”
We invited artists to participate through a rolling open call, which remains open for the entirety of this year. From these submissions, our jury panel carefully selects new works to present on FLATFILE, with new works added throughout all of 2021.
The price of each artwork is a flat $2,021,
a discounted price from the actual value of each work, offered here, exclusively.
