Placeholders is an ongoing project combining paintings with found objects to create facsimiles that are based on building materials such as cinder blocks, pallets and bricks. While living in Lubbock, Texas I developed my interest in the built environment and its psychological implications. I’m interested in the idea of boundaries in an ever-changing urban and natural landscape, and ultimately I aim to produce a moment of pause that not only questions the idea of place and identity, but also challenges them.
