I always wanted my work to play with and address the ideas of site. It intrigues me as to how work can change entirely depending on how it is hung, or where it is hung. By using the

space around a painting I allow it to play an equal role in how the painting is encountered by the viewer as extends beyond the picture plane. The issues are now, where a painting begins and where it ends, your entry point of a painting, and where you are allowed to enter a painting. Space can alter how paintings communicate and how the viewer can be manipulated to react in a certain way towards specific works.  Each and every one of these thoughts must be considered before I even begin to hang my work.
