Painting @Elainedekooning house, I'm trying to let my unconscious be my guide, much in the same manner of the Abstract Expressionists. I'm painting where my hand leads me and where my mind takes me, thinking about distant memories and dreams as much as our current political crises. If we could project our dreams onto a screen, I think they would look like essentialized icons or cartoons, onto which we the project meaning. To bring about dream space time in my paintings in a more renaissance like space, but without literalizing the forms to be something they are not in the unconscious—to lift the veil and go beyond language is my goal.
