I am a rising senior majoring in painting at the Rhode Island School of Design with a concentration in art history. For me, painting and drawing are one integrally linked practice. My recent work focuses on representations of people and their spaces. In these, I have been experimenting with composing space and surface: spaces that possess the potential to be an intimate portrait of the person or people inhabiting it. I am considering what stories can be told through the remnants of daily life and interactions, such as how they tell stories both personal and political about contemporary life. As an artist born, raised, and currently living in New England it is often the backdrop for these investigations into life. While approaching my subjects, I am invested in cultivating a sensitive and caring perspective. I am curious and enjoy problem-solving, in my painting practice I aim for ways I can expand my “toolbox” of techniques and broaden my painting approaches. Artists I am currently looking at include Patrick Caulfield, Mickalene Thomas, Willem de Kooning, R.B. Kitaj, and Roy Lichtenstein, among many others.
