My multidisciplinary practice spans painting, installation and conversational performances. I believe that all beings, objects and Earth inter-are and inter-be. We can conceptualize this interbeing as an all-encompassing background that is also the foreground. My work trains our awareness to this background - that which is sometimes invisible or ignored, but is the field from which everything arises. This background manifests as landscape, the quality of transparency, underlying story, or the emotional experiences of the body. I employ the specificity of images and manners as an invitation into an awareness of the undifferentiated - pure consciousness, endless possibility, blue sky.Want to contact? email me firstname.lastname@example.org
My intention in bringing StoryHut to Performance is Alive at the Satellite Art Show in December 2017 was to create space for listening, conversation and reflection within the ebullient chaos of commerce and display that is Art Week in Miami. To create this space, I knew that darkness would be crucial. Dimming of the visual sense would help participants in my interview performance look inward in the midst of the the art fair setting, which is predominantly about looking outward at art objects and the aestheticized spaces and people who surround them. In contrast, I wanted the StoryHut Campsite to be a quiet space, an interior within an interior.
