I am a newcomer to the city. One who is both fascinated and fearful of New York. In my paintings, drawings, and prints, I gravitate toward nocturnal urban landscapes. I take inspiration from cinema, specifically scenes of suspense often shot in alleyways and deserted highways from a voyeuristic viewpoint, from my walks in the city. Like a director editing the establishing shot, I choose each composition that places the viewer in a position of vulnerability. I use photography and film to influence how I can turn shots I often stumble upon spontaneously into distorted scenes of reality, leaving someone to ask, how did I get here and what is next?
