An affirmative declaration.
These paintings are equally about the subject and the resulting object. They represent a dialogue in my own exploration of the two. The beginning point is being mindfulness of a subject in my domestic activities. My choices have their own subjective connections for me. My view is to be present and open. The objects and scenes are to be presented with an honest direct accounting of my process. The basic idea of beginning with a three-dimensional subject, to the work on a two-dimensional surface, is a distillation of information and process. The representational nature of my subject on a two-dimensional surface has kept me exploring. With a surface of canvas or panel, I present them as is.
