Nashville, TN | Painting, Drawing
Bio:

Born in Nashville (1987) raised in Sewanee, Tennessee. I currently live and work between places, with a small house - that I designed and built - in Sewanee and an even smaller apartment in Nashville. I studied sculpture at Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis (2010) and currently work between drawing, photography and painting.

Statement:

My current work meditates on the arbitrariness with which symbols can represent unfathomably complicated realities; a letter representing a place; a word representing a feeling; or even how a color can mean something as fluid as sexuality. I use drawing and photography within familiar contexts in order to present an alternate reality of symbols that I hope elaborate and frustrate our everyday.
