I employ digital media, drawing and painting to create work reflecting states of instability. Embracing the infinitesimal realm of physics, I manipulate computer code to generate animations of simulated particle collisions. From these animations I capture still images to create paintings and drawings which explore a new language of abstraction.

Solo shows in New York include Nature Morte Gallery, White Columns, Denise Bibro Fine Art, Cheryl Pelavin Fine Art, Berland/Hall Gallery; as well as Nature Morte in New Delhi, India. Selected group exhibitions include the New Museum, and the Drawing Center, both in New York City; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; the ZKM/Center for Art & Media, Karlsruhe, Germany; Musée Dole and Musée Mediathèque, Uzès, France.

Most recently, Americans for the Arts cited my permanent Public Art Project "Electromagnetic Fall" as one of the best public art projects for 2010. I received a 2009 Fellow in Digital/Electronic Arts and a 1989 Fellow in Painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts. I have also been awarded fellowships from the Gottlieb Foundation and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation as well as being nominated for fellowships from Anonymous Was a Woman and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation.

Articles and reviews of her work have appeared in such publications as Artforum, Art in America, Arts Magazine, Flash Art, Artbyte and The New Yorker. My work is included in Art+Science Now, a visual survey of artists working at the frontiers of science and technology published by Thames & Hudson. Selected collections include the U.S. Library of Congress, the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Goldman Sachs, and Pfizer Corporation.

I received a B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Certificate of Advanced Multimedia from NYU. I teach at Parsons/The New School of Design and Queens College, NY.
