“In an infinitely interconnected landscape
feelings of claustrophobia, alienation, and isolation run rampant.”

Using a visual language that stems from my love for science-fiction film and expressionist painting, I create paintings that are windows in to cityscapes. In those cities the window is a substitute for the figure.
I am interested in the way people interact with different kinds of windows and screens. I interpret each window as its own abstract painting and as a screen (computer, smartphone, or television display). Much like an individuals social media page, each lit window is open for others to see. Whatever was put there is not a true representation of that person, it is only an abstract view of what the individual wants others to see.
While there are no figures in the landscape, the viewer has a window of their own. The paintings themselves act as windows into the eyes of an individual. Each painting being in the point of view of a protagonist looking out in contemplation to the city she calls home.
