Artist Statement

My recent paintings are about absence and longing. Some are quiet, contemplative scenes from reconstruction sites-both in New York and New Orleans-where work has come to a temporary standstill. Other works in the series depict (non)views through generic hotel room windows. The vacancy of these spaces is palpable, and the overall mood of the work is subdued. Many of the images feature thresholds; in addition to the windows, there are doorways, tunnels and holes. These are liminal zones, where one might pass from one space or state of being to another, but often a curtain, screen or reflective surface interferes, holding the viewer back at the point of transition. Transition is thus presented as a continuous state. We are ever in flux.
