Drawing + Painting, MFA Drawing/Painting
I am drawn to certain conditions of light and space, which usually contain elements of isolation, reflection, or atmospheric perspective. These come together in various genres - the space interior, the figure in contemplation, and atmospheric cityscape or landscape. Within these I try to articulate the feeling I get in transitional low light conditions. The light is the focus of the paintings, creating mood, but with a lively varied surface. Location influences my paintings tremendously. I travel to reinvent the subjects I paint, seeking a fresh eye abroad, or upon return.
