“Currently, my research shimmers between the boundaries of painting and sculpture. I am exploring the application of pigment on translucent and opaque surfaces, allowing the infrastructure to integrate within the image. These investigations can lead to sculptural objects, but also, engage with the history of abstraction by creating within the restraints of the stretcher and the rectangle. When the piece exceeds these constraints, an association is made with forms familiar to fabric and the body. https://www.taahd.com/
