Artists bio available upon request

Recently​ ​I​ ​have​ ​been​ ​considering​ ​chameleonic​ ​behavior.​ ​Resembling​ ​the​ ​characteristics​ ​of​ ​our surroundings​ ​reflects​ ​a​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​blend​ ​in​ ​and​ ​a​ ​connection​ ​to​ ​place.​ ​As​ ​an​ ​introvert,​ ​I​ ​find​ ​myself pondering​ ​both​ ​sides​ ​to​ ​this​ ​idea​ ​on​ ​a​ ​fairly​ ​regular​ ​basis.​ ​Rather​ ​than​ ​simply​ ​pass​ ​through,​ ​the subjects​ ​of​ ​these​ ​“Chameleon”​ ​paintings​ ​partially​ ​transform​ ​into​ ​their​ ​space.​ ​Becoming​ ​part​ ​of something​ ​bigger,​ ​without​ ​completely​ ​losing​ ​one’s​ ​self,​ ​is​ ​a​ ​common​ ​and​ ​curious​ ​human​ ​desire.​ ​In​ ​the early​ ​stages​ ​of​ ​this​ ​series,​ ​I​ ​developed​ ​a​ ​fascination​ ​with​ ​vintage​ ​wallpaper​ ​and​ ​fabric​ ​that​ ​continues to​ ​inspire​ ​much​ ​of​ ​the​ ​pattern​ ​play​ ​in​ ​these​ ​works.
