Paintings on Cut Silhouettes

These pieces are the core of my work. They are about dreaming and remembering as much as they are about living in the city. I overlay multiple places or images in the same physical space to reflect an experience I believe many of us share: a constant overlaying of our internal landscapes onto the external world. Through my cut-silhouette grounds and their painted surface imagery I’m working on pulling these personal landscapes out to the surface and placing the act of looking into the present by incorporating the shadows cast on the gallery wall into the piece being viewed.
