Rhode Island, USA/London, UK
Tourette's Syndrome is a neurological energy storm wherein the bearer is compelled to involuntary movements known as tics. I have lived my life with this condition, always compelled into motion. Whilst painting however, I am entirely still; the energy is redirected instead into visual art. Stillness through movement. This has become the philosophical basis of my work, for the exploration of the union of opposing forces. Not just a coexistence, but a confluence. The world becomes bigger.
I draw heavily off the influence of synesthesia, representing the non-visual experience in a visual format. In this way I open the discourse surrounding what reality is, giving credibility to experiences that we do not share in an acute way, but are part of the greater human condition of being a lifelong seeker, open to the validity of the intangible.
Currently on view at: Artists' Cooperative Gallery of Westerly (Westerly, RI)
My works are held in multiple private and public collections throughout the United States and the United Kingdom, and I have collaborated with prestigious cultural institutions including the Rhode Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts. An avid traveler, I have lived in diverse regions of the United States and have recently completed a 6 month tour of western Europe.
