My recent work focuses on a series of paintings that engage fragments and artifacts to intertwine distance, desire, and affective uses of paint. Mining the museum archive for my subjects feeds into a process of studying fragmentation and presentations of visual hierarchies. The painting becomes an archeological site for uncovering moments of longing across physical space. The work engages an overlap between object relations and the literal object, an inanimate entity owned and observed. In this way a study of the muse has developed.
