am Stöhr - Room 215

My work explores the edge of legibility. I live in California, where the light is so stark and constant that I find myself almost blinded at times. Spending many hours on a computer screen, reading text embedded in flickering LCD lights, my eyes have to adjust to find the right legible edge.

I work with vibrant shellac inks on bright white Yupo paper, an absorbent PVC surface. In my paintings, I create a crisp division between the painted surface and the über-artificial white Yupo paper, which creates shape and form equally in the painted and the non- painted surface. Neon acrylic paint gives the painting an additional element, playing with our spectral sensitivity. I think that our daily use of screen devices changes our visual perception. As an artist I’m naturally interested in pursuing and exploring that idea.
