With a personal conviction and desire for artistic independence, I became inclined to challenge my resourcefulness within the confines of my own, unique studio. Though the imagery is obtained from observation, photographic reference and small “still life” arrangements, these works emerge as depictions of a personal, artistic mental space, rather than a logical one, consisting of vessel objects, painting debris, arbitrary miscellanea, and a solitary nude figure in repose, which is repeated, inverted, fragmented, bent, and merged into each table top environment

Following this idiosyncratic vision and dialoguing with the formal possibilities and limitations of paint and practice, this work was conceived to grasp the private frustration, uncanny familiarity, and quiet solitude experienced in this creatively autonomous territory.
