20 Jay Street, 318
My highly concentrated paintings and works of text and image peek over the wall into lives both mundane and extraordinary in an attempt to transmute the flotsam of the world into a larger narrative. My work embraces a multiplicity of forms of image-making without judging their status. I am equally interested in Dutch Still Life, Indian miniature painting, and Chinese restaurant menus. I believe any honest accounting of our world includes all three, shows each equal care, and therefore isn’t limited to a singular style or mode of making. Thus, each work requires new techniques, approaches, and journeys down rabbit-holes. Together, my pieces form a body of work as disparate as the world that informs them, but linked by an interest in everyday moments and the vernacular image.
