Haystack

In the summer of 2019, I attended Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, where I participated in a painting workshop/residency. Working closely with artist/instructor Jenny Brillhart, I used found objects from my surroundings to create experimental installations that were then re-imagined in the form of photos, collages, and paintings. Paying mind to form, composition, and relationship to place, I aimed to uncover the abstract or surreal beauty in the things otherwise overlooked.
