The dynamics of the architecture within these paintings are geometrically impossible, making their spaces ceaselessly unsatisfied in their want to be occupied, stuck forever as two-dimensional impostors of three-dimensional spaces. A ceaseless desire to be "real architecture" turns these structures into metaphors for the impossible existence of an "authentic" identity, which so often causes painful divisions between what is felt from inside the body and what is visible from the outside. I am driven to put work into the world that gives a visual metaphor through which we may begin to understand the imagined qualities of our pursuits of so-called truths of who we assume ourselves to be.
