Fragments of Space, series statement
“In 1893, Belgian artist Henry de Groux painted The Great Upheaval, perhaps a tumultuous and confused condemnation of industrialization. In it, men and women are seen in states of disarray and upheaval, seemingly setting off into some unknown exile or exodus. The painting’s composition reveals no guiding light or direction and demotes an aimless and uncertain fate for its inhabitants. The obvious turmoil has an open-ended narrative – Is it the destruction of and mourning for a former reality, or a depiction of the potential of reconstruction denoting renewed hope?
My work inhabits and reflects the ‘Great Upheaval’ of our times. Our world feels chaotic and confusing. We’re in the midst of a redefinition of everything we thought we knew. My work reflects on chaos and hope through an imagined pictorial and structural content outside of the confines of known space and perspective.”
