An important part of my practice is to explore the artwork that I have incredible access to in NYC. Working full time in Manhattan has allowed me to go to galleries and museums at least once a week. It has become integral to my work to see what others are doing and to have my own voice amongst the larger conversations of society (through the art medium). I normally have so many thoughts about curatorial decisions, educational components or exhibitionary layouts (etc.) that I decided to start writing formal blog posts. I had the opportunity to do a contemporary art semester in NY while I was a senior at college and doing these writing posts made an everlasting impact on me, not only as an artist but as a person.
