refers to the rare state of absolute bliss, where one can feel truly
content with a sense of balance and clarity - while also feeling numb
to it, unable to fully access that bliss. In this body of work, I am
pursuing that feeling through the physical act of painting. It deals
with the mind body connection, what we hold onto in the body, and what
happens when it’s released through movement.
Over this past year, I've developed a process that challenges
me to tune into these subtleties, and to linger on them long enough
that they can then transfer onto the canvas/paper. This stream of
consciousness painting forces me to follow my gut instinct, to listen
more intuitively, and has become a way of documenting the rhythm of the
way my mind moves, like an alternative form of meditation.”
