House paint and stain on wood, 2017, 44"w x 43"h

Staining and painting wood has many meanings and correlations. My work deals with construction, labor and household projects as creative healing. Staining a coffee table or Sunday painting, I am fascinated with how creativity and projects are used as a form of meditation. With these works I am focusing on how the wood is constructed and how different types of wood function in relation to one another. All the materials are found and purchased at hardware stores. Domestic materials and techniques carry their own weight and bring a unifying stance on what art can be and for whom.
