• Weingart Gallery, Occidental College
• A painting within a film within a painting… The painting displays an abstraction of freely applied ketchup, chocolate, and other ambiguous substances. In the near center, a television emerges through an impetuously fashioned opening in the canvas, presenting a short, looping film. Somewhere in between comedy and horror, the fictional piece offers an account of the processes that went into every detail on the canvas, from the stains to the incisions. In one sense the canvas exists in the timeless world of this fictional film, with its sinister character and physical development separated from reality. However, in the gallery, it exhibits its verisimilitude or authenticity, transcending the two realities presented to the spectator.
Stream of Consciousness (2011)
• Winter Art Show, Urban School of San Francisco
• This installation was a commentary on the common sentiment of me being weird. It was a call for reconsideration, or rather framing this point of view in a way that celebrates eccentricity. I approached the sequence of paintings from left to right, with no trajectory or plan, instead letting my stream of consciousness take control.
