I am interested in embodied and psychological facets of perception. I use painting to highlight the experience of visual perception as layered and ambiguous, drawing connections to the ambiguities of certain concepts. In particular, the varied, imperfect construction of categories that try (and fail) to contain waste: to abstract it, conceal it, or define it as worthless. In this exploration I look to material waste, technological glitches, and ‘wasted’ time.
