Description

My presentation will cover my approach to my art making practice:My art practice evolved out of my natural tendency towards overthinking. Painting is a contemplative practice for me; one that has a tangible start and stop, helps to create order out of perceived chaos, and turns intangible thoughts and ideas into real-world creations. Through painting I am able to explore my thoughts as they relate to themes of existentialism and psychology. I often contemplate meaning and purpose.Within existentialism I am particularly drawn to themes of meaning or purpose, and individual experiences. My interest in psychology comes from a desire to understand myself and others. I realized truly objective art is impossible, and there was no way to separate my work from myself and my experiences. My work now focuses a lot on subjectivity, existentialist thought, and memories and moments from my personal life. I approach my painting practice as a time for contemplation, and a way to question the world around me.
