I am interested in the medium of photography and painting as a mechanism for speaking about my present state, specifically, my interaction with everyday urban architectural landscapes. My work examines the manipulation of structure as a means to deconstruct and reconfigure space and the human form. My paintings are linked to my personal history, my re-imagination of the spaces I inhabit and spaces of the past. My first solo show, titled “DIS(located) silence: paintings”, shed light on the vacillating nature of identity and how its struggle can be interpreted through the visual language of painting. "Dysmorphia(s)" are abstract portraits of the female form captured in the subject's personal space. By utilizing a lens, I approach the human form with a sensitivity to light, color, and movement. "Re-Fractions" is a series focused on the physical process of imprinting paint on photographic objects. www.audreeanid.com firstname.lastname@example.org
