Artist / Personal Statement
Quotidian domesticity is a leitmotif of my work, but my hope is that this theme is a conduit for deeper and more subtle levels of meaning, like the sacredness in daily living, the fact that sadness and hope exist side by side, and the beauty in making something beautiful simply because it is good to do so. In my work, it is my intent that form and content be two cords of the same string. I am a figurative painter, but I am also a formalist. Like folding clothes, or arranging books on a shelf, I am methodical in my compositions and cognizant of the rhythms of line and shape and color that I utilize to bring life to my picture-making. I am interested in levels of meaning, but I am also interested in making a painting. I want to make order, to make something beautiful simply because it is good to do so.
