About

American b. 1980  —  I work in oils, collage, and found media. My paintings and installations are socially engaged. I am drawn to artists who challenge institutions - financial, art historical, gendered - and whose work changes the rules that institutions work to establish. While societies need structure, I am interested in how structures must evolve, and in some cases entirely collapse. Broadly, my work wrestles with vulnerability, normativity, injustice, and the existential dilemma of artistic and civic agency. I graduated from MICA with a BFA in Painting in 2002, and earned an MFA in painting from RISD in 2011. I have exhibited at both traditional galleries and alternative artist-run spaces. In the past six months, I was included in group shows at Ed Varie, NYC and Wick Gallery, BK and had a solo show at Catbox Contemporary in Ridgewood, Queens. I’ve also shown at David Zwirner, NYC, Shoot the Lobster, NYC, Knockdown Center, Queens, and at Zolla/Leiberman in Chicago, amongst others. In 2017, I was featured in New American Paintings.
