 My work is fundamentally at odds with the pervasive “cult of busyness.” Time consuming to make and packed with detail, my paintings demand a certain level of time and attention before revealing all they have to offer. Traditional themes and compositions provide familiar entry points, luring viewers deep into dreamlike scenes from everyday life. Intense attention to detail captivates modern eyes that are more accustomed to scrolling imagery consumed at warp speed. Exaggeration of form and space create an underlying sensation of the uncanny that deliberately borders on the surreal; nostalgia for the mundane comes to life through vivid and vulgar uses of color.
