Here I Am With You
July 5 – 30, 2019
Here I Am With You addresses themes of memory, vulnerability, intimacy and boyhood. Working in blue, my drawings are experienced through the lens of the uncanny. Through storytelling, I reflect on a lineal space, often meeting a memory.
I am interested in the landscape and its relationship to the body. The impermanence of our bodies against a perpetual space; a blue sky, constantly changing upon arrival.
These paintings utilize the power of our personal histories and agency of how we view and interact with spaces that are veiled by memories. The ambiguity of the figures allow the viewer to unconsciously find themselves reflecting on their own memories and question if this is an experience they too have versed.
Here I Am With You will run at Understudy July 5th – July 30, 2019. There will be a special opening reception on July 5th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm with the artist in attendance.
Understudy will be open for visitation Wednesday through Saturday from 12:00pm – 5:00pm. Understudy is free-to-visit and open to all.
