For the Kid in Lonely Town

Mixed media (canvas print, acrylic, string), 2017, 30"w x 30"h x 1.5"d

I am an abstract painter obsessed with the elements of kitsch and heartache within my painting practice. Material experimentation includes materials such as wallpaper, tablecloths, electrical tape and floral textiles—considering the kitsch qualities of the perfect home and traditional images that are produced around idealized romantic relationships. Drawing from cliché lyrics of love songs, breakup tunes are key to my studio atmosphere, creating a visual language of mark-making that communicates and reclaims emotional trauma.
