Organic Abstraction and Interventions

With these works I'm thinking about traditional painting perimeters as architecture and how to change expectations of edges and right angles. Sort of like using interior architecture for installation/intervention of what's expected in spaces.

Organic and inorganic angles and edges.

Somehow these relate to ideas of masculinity and femininity as well-- considering how gender roles may influence how women and men hold space differently.

Materials are traditional for painting but they are used in somewhat untraditional ways. Materials and colors carry associations that may change depending on the viewer.
