Drawing and Painting



Painting, fibre, and digital works

“ “brain hurt, head e M P t Y” is a turbulent clutter of collage and kitsch acting as documentation of my neurodivergence. I work to depict thoughts and emotions abstractly through the format of iSpy games. I invite the viewer to take a step inside my mind to explore moments of nostalgia and tactility.The works can be observed on multiple platforms to allow for different viewing experiences. It exists in a 3D scan: allowing the viewer to physically situate themselves in the space I live and work in. Embracing the chaos of my tiny, messy room and how it bleeds into my work. As well as a close-up video format: intimately twisting the way the work is absorbed to more closely resemble the way my brain functions. Creating these pieces through my playful and explorative process has freed me from the crushing weight I felt working in the European canon of painting. By killing my aesthetic parents I have allowed myself to center my experiences in the work and prioritize my own well-being and joy.Anyways, here’s Wonderwall.
