Making Art Now
I like to work on several paintings simultaneously. My studio is currently filled with a variety of work--from abstract to still life. Making art – especially now – provides an outlet where I can process my thoughts and emotions around the changes we are currently experiencing. • My still life work hovers around the idea of relationships. I have been looking closely at gesture and physicality in my work – the lilt of an orchid or the way objects lean toward one another. BEFORE the pandemic these ideas were a point of interest for me – NOW they feel even more meaningful in this environment of separation, isolation, and social distancing. I take inspiration from this. I hope my paintings express comfort and gently remind us how touch and holding our loved ones is incredibly life sustaining.
