hello world!

It’s Me!

This is a project!

These are some sites!



This project begins with a sip of sparkling apple juice… 3 gallons and many, many trips to the bathroom later, a collection is born. Now there’s something particularly fantastic how light shines through glass bottles. Moreover, there’s┬ásomething amazing about how light shines through a colorful and refreshing beverage in such a way that it almost becomes a source of light itself. This phenomenon of luminescence is my inspiration.

Shirin Neshat is an artist I am currently researching. She works with Photography and Film to document and question social, cultural, and political changes in Post-Islamic Revolution Iran. What drew me to her work was the starkness of the imagery, the sharp contrasts of light against dark, and the tattoo-like writing on the faces, hands and feet. My own work is with india ink and black watercolor. I try to achieve similar value transitions as well as a focus on figures and people. My brush strokes try to mimic calligraphy much like the Farsi text on the skin. I will continue to draw inspiration from her work and try to make something original for myself.
