As a student of astronomy, I have used lenses to view and study celestial bodies that are not visible with the naked eye. In my paintings, I set out to straddle the line between vague recognition and abstraction. My process is founded in scientific exploration of dynamically interacting common household materials such as tinfoil, saran wrap, and tissue paper. I photograph these materials in order to distort them through the lens of a camera and capture unique moments in time otherwise unseen. Through paint, I further obscure the identity of these materials in order to create abstract landscapes in which the paint as much as the image becomes the subject.
