VCUARTS ANDERSON GALLERY Space Grant
During July and August 2019, I was a Space Grant recipient at VCUarts Anderson Gallery in Richmond, VA. I enjoyed 24/7 access to a private studio space where I created installations, staged photo and video shoots, and made paintings. I invited guests, including writers and curators, to the space for studio visits.

This evolving mixed media installation was staged in the space during July. I invited guests to visit and respond to the work by writing and re-staging objects in an effort to find their own ritual. While visitors interacted with the space, I made live paintings as part of my own ritual. Throughout the process, factors such as lighting, the installation's physical relationship with the room changed, and even my approach to painting changed.
