Remembrances Still Lifes

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.
