Artist's Statement

My paintings portray the built environment, often carving out private moments within public space. They are often of places where work is performed, though the exact type of labor or study might remain unclear. Mirrors or glass cases often frame the space presented, affecting the viewer’s relationship to it. We are partially looking in, but partially also - by implication - standing among. I aim to highlight a kind of attention in my work: momentarily arrested by something curious, possibly something reminiscent of past experience.
