Artist Statement

 

"Summer Water" is a term my friend coined for rosé—well, if he didn't, I'm giving him credit anyway. This piece was made earlier this spring in anticipation for the long, hot days and dewy nights of summer. The image is created from several brush-pen studies. I'm still not sure whether a paper bag over your drink allows for a full pass on drinking in public, but generally it gets the job done so that you can enjoy whatever beverage you prefer, anywhere in this city. The idea is to represent a snapshot of our summer in New York City. This piece is a characteristic example of the sort of everyday subject matter I choose to render: objects we encounter daily that, given a moment to appreciate, can be infused with playful beauty and import. They are the items that make up our lives and should be appreciated as such. My take, both figurative and graphic, suggests a particular reflection of what's there, my impression on paper. It is loose, light—my hand is always visible. I hope to offer clean, bold observations which are deliberate but not precious or immaculate; observational but interpretive.
