In my work, the geometric figures are stand-ins for people, each shape a character or portrait generalized into anonymity. Their gestures and the spaces between them depict social interactions or internalized feelings, while color and elements of landscape operate as metaphors. I’m particularly interested in subtle emotional exchanges, when small gestures and inflections – or inferred tone, when communicating in text – seem particularly important. It’s often in this subtle space that larger cultural and social hierarchies are expressed in our everyday lives.
