About Remembrances

My newest collection is a series of 9 still lifes entitled Remembrances.

I started this collection by gathering various objects that I found particularly beautiful or held special meaning to me. Combined with various fruits, plants, and, yes, even a lobster, I set up over a dozen different arrangements in my studio, photographing each meticulously until I found my favorite compositions to capture with paint.

Objects are just things until they are assigned meaning: a bowl that was my grandmother’s, an artisan-made pitcher from my mother, a shell found during a walk on my favorite beach.

They are little moments remembered: beauty plus meaning, captured for all of time.

Created with layers of paint, inspiring color, and the occasional paint drip, these pieces are a study in contrasts: thin pencil lines against washes of pigment, crisp shadows against visible brushstrokes, and hard, shiny objects against loose and soft layers. Blending reality and fiction, these works are a lovely reminder of things and times past. A remembrance, created out of paint.
