The Heart Wants What It Wants makes the room the painted object, and lets the viewer wander this space in a surreal series of associations and actions. The 70s-era linoleum floor pattern sets the stage for a room of shadows- of which the viewers becomes one. Moving through the space, it’s hard to tell what shadows your own body is casting, and which were already there.

Anthropormophic shapes blend into walls with canvases, glitches, and familiar yet-unfamiliar outlines. Two displayed paintings are covered over with a blanket of thick black paint that has dripped onto the floor and formed a stiff pool. Layers pile on like memories, changing from each new angle.
