WORK IN PROGRESS CHASING PAINT
 
 

Statement

I use the techniques of traditional representational still life painting to explore contemporary issues that are also personally significant to me. Once the initial concept is chosen, my process involves researching appropriate elements, gathering materials, arranging them into visual metaphors and doing principal source photography. After the initial drawing is completed using a grid transfer, each painting takes anywhere from two weeks to six months, depending upon size and complexity. I prefer to work in a series, like the chapters of a book, with breaks to explore intuitive left turns and follow my fancy.
