Ink/Paint on Canvas, 2018

Inspired by the still life genre, I create lyrical still life paintings that explore deeply personal, theoretical, and mythological themes. I manipulate form, color, and space that transforms ordinary objects into provocative compositions that require the viewer to reconsider their relationship with the object and with the object's relationship with others in the space. In addition, the viewer must grapple with their interpretation of the overall composition's mood. A calming series of objects at once are still and yet create a space instilled with vibrant movement- at times comforting and at times not.
