About

 

studio

I am a painter with particular interests in what we may overlook the familiar the quotidian the nostalgic, I am interested in beauty, I am not interested in the rotting down entropy in things but maybe the tipping point from beauty , something just off from perfection, that makes them real. A brown mark on a leaf next to a bright fresh one makes that fleeting newness more poignant.

Art gives the past a form saves it from disintegration and change.
