These pieces are explorations of the artist’s Synesthesia, an involuntary, consistent, and memorable sensory modality that allows them to visualize and experience waves of color and twisting shapes when responding to emotions, movement, sound, pleasure, pain, and touch. By playfully interweaving a wealth of recycled inks, fabrics, paper scraps and found objects, the artist rejoices in the imagery of tanglement, and seeks to illuminate the whimsical and chaotic nature of the human subconscious, and the intimate dance it is perpetually locked in with itself.
