“My work consists of depicting spaces that are inspired by the ordinary and triggered by the mundane. I paint scenes, or the places where incidents in real life or fiction occur. My work questions what is realism and what is fiction, and depicts the spaces in which they converge. There is a constant tension between the ordinary and the superlative and between natural and artificial color. This occurrence is true in real life so it is truthful in the scenes I paint. I am both investigating and celebrating my experience of liminal spaces.”
