Nashville, TN | Painting, Drawing
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.
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.
