My goal as a painter is simplifying, zooming in, concentrating on a corner of vision, and noticing a sliver, a piece, of the complexity in which we are conscious. In a single view, to pick a tiny moment, a blink of an eye, a glance, and enlarge it, through my subjective vision and physical body, translating it into something semi-permanent.
To be able to observe (hold) any moment a bit longer is impossible, yet the work is an attempt to render it as it is consecutively filtered through my eyes, memory, and hands, in the hope of invoking myriad moments and memories through a simple and subtly surreal image.
Every shadow flickering across the pavement, every breeze, every gleam of sunlight, every chill and every warmth. Each sensation, taste, and scent- how things just happen to come together wherever we happen to be.
