Artist Statement Submitted 2019

In this recent body of work, I am continuing to explore the power of the commonplace object and the drama created by its juxtaposition to other relating objects. Some paintings are simple and playful, while other paintings have many layers to inspect and explore. The meanings are intended to be personal to each viewer, but through careful inspection, the audience may notice elements of narrative. The paintings may serve as a catalyst for nostalgia, re-connecting the viewer to a memory or to a place long forgotten. I want the paintings to engage the audience in conversation and question the audience to look deeper into themselves and their personal experiences; from where they started, to where they are now.
