"My painting process starts and proceeds intuitively. Moving fluidly between modes of painting, from gestural abstraction to fastidious naturalistic rendering, I build pictorial spaces using perspectival schema as an armature. Created in 2020 and 2021, this body of paintings reflects my preoccupation with both the perils of nationalism and the way White America perceives its own history."
