Abstract

The focus of my studio work is an exploration of my interest in the physical and mental dynamics that take place within the confines of my home versus the world outside. The home, spatial arrangements (architecture, passageways), maritime disasters, and the ambiguity of abstract expressionism all have an identifiable impact on my images. Abstraction allows me to maintain a visual ambiguity that often reflects the ambiguity of the real-life situations on which they are based. My drawings are rooted in remembrances of events and interior architecture culled from childhood memories. It also explores the juxtaposition of domesticity and fear, both imagined and real, past and present. I’m currently in control of both. Currently.
