I primarily express myself through still-lifes. I am interested in the personal effects of ‘domestic landscapes’ and their connections to time, place and experience. Responses to these items be simultaneously intimate and universal as they trigger memory and the attached emotions. An iconography of my familiar has become the visual narrative in my work.
Solid composition, the effects of light across objects and the duplicitous nature of shadows, which reveal and deceive at the same time, are my primary formal concerns.
“In order to get to something universal you must be very specific.” – Max Beckman
