Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Woodside, CA
Spring 2018 Artist-in-Residence
"Djerassi Resident Artists Program is recognized internationally for its pre-eminence as an artist residency. We strive to provide the best possible residency experience for artists of superior talent from a diverse range of backgrounds and geographical locations."
During my residency I continued working on the series of paintings and drawings entitled "Longitude and Latitude". In this series, I explore the geographic and mnemonic landscapes of historical and social events.
The process employs researching both recognized and marginalized occurrences to create compositions that summarize complex information into a scale that is more intimate and nuanced than the accounts we are usually exposed to. So rather than relying on realistic representations of people or places, this project is about establishing a narrative of impressions that encapsulate a specific moment in time.
