Many of my paintings and drawings express solitary narratives in uneventful domestic settings. My work derives from my responses to evanescent moments in life. I strive to capture subconscious states of communication that relay innocently through posture and facial expression. Thus my concept is distilled and the work speaks not only to my own, but to the human experience
They are artificial moments, certainly, but are invented in support of very real sentiments. Although I use traditional representational methods, I believe my work is subtly but firmly linked to the contemporary culture through concept, unlike it’s perceived antiquated stereotype. With emotion, perception and travail, I seek to find the best possibility of visual translation of the immeasurable realities that I see and experience.
