DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Acrylic on wood panel
ARTIST STATEMENT: My astronaut pieces are autobiographical. The evocative imagery of the astronauts in unknown planetary environments felt representative of the social isolation I experienced in the pandemic. The helmet and suit confine and protect the figure, creating a barrier between him and his environment. The piece explores the tension between survival and isolation as well as vulnerability in exploring unknown terrains. I use 3D modeling, rendering to create a digital reference which guides my painting.
