Art historian Jennie Hirsh writes: “Dense and ethereal, the satiny finishes of these peculiar paintings quietly glow, drawing the viewer toward the weight of the entombed linen and wooden supports, their enigmatic nature hinting at their long studio gestation.” Each work takes months, sometimes years, to complete and the resulting paintings are hauntingly beautiful, emergent forms born out of a laborious communion of materiality and consciousness.
