Artist Statement

 

I start a painting with a story, a narrative of sorts that is formed as I paint, but as I continue, the original story gets flipped and skewed on the paper and the icons and characters of my story become remnants of the original story. I like to use the house as a symbol in my paintings because their simplicity obscures the complex and uniquely personal relationship that each viewer has to an idea of ‘home’. The telephone poles are a universal and quickly fading icon of communication that symbolize emotional connection, formality, privacy, disconnection and alienation. In painting, I’m always curious and excited to see how my internalized storytelling when I paint, manifests itself on the paper.

Below is my internal story for the painting, “from this thought a hazy question”.

Go ahead, turn the knob, and that will start this world up.
You see it, right? Just east of the yellow sails. Then the people in the houses will rush to their controls, the wires will jiggle, the satellites will listen, the engines will roar and from this thought a hazy question will form.
