These paintings are part of a body of work centered on my studio practice, a sanctuary for reflection. Informed by the example of eighteenth and nineteenth century French paintings of artists in their studios, I paint the workspace of my studio, arranging paintings and sculptural objects to reveal aspects of my experience. Through physically connecting my body in space via formal relationships, touching and painting, my work emphasizes a human scale, painting-driven connection to the roots of my own symbolic narrative and its specific culture, history and architecture.
