In my practice, I investigate how oil paint signifies with its corporeality, constituting a reality wholly unto itself with its bodily presence, what I term, “corpo-reality.” The gustatory way in which the paint is applied means that my works cannot be understood in a detached, purely visual way, but the ingestiveness of the viewing experience must also be accounted for. My paintings provide a bridge for which an alternative viewing experience, one that is reconstructed viscerally, becomes possible. Traditional boundaries separating viewer and object are stripped away, allowing for a more intimate viewing experience that is felt directly in the viewer’s body.
