I am fascinated by growth-forms, root systems of plants and movements of microscopic organisms. In those I see a sensitive chaos that contains and propels the origins and energies of life. The energy temporarily contained by and used to transform natural forms particularly inspires me.

My paintings capture fleeting moments in this organic world dominated by change.

Evoking the mystery and power of nature through intensely materialist and tactile forms and imagery, I want to create a mesmerizing effect of movement. My work explores the porous boundaries between what is seen and felt, places where perception and experiences merge.

Exhibition “2021”

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.
