Artist Statement

Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) is a degenerative disorder targeting
language faculties in the brain. This collapse of the brain’s infrastructure is
due in part to an abundance of neurofibrillary tangles and plague formation.
How does this difference challenge, confuse and isolate the individual In
Conversation? In Conversation embodies the frustration of a mind committed
to deterioration. My hand sabotages the canvas in the metaphoric process by
accumulating material, ripping sense apart and distorting language. In the
end, the viewer glimpses the limited expression of a mind in twilight. All the
while, a mass of frenzied interference stirs beneath the surface.
