Artist Statement

"It is my belief that still life painting stems from the  close observation of reality. I have found that the  apparent stillness which material things seem to  embody is set into motion through the act of seeing,  drawing and painting. Through close scrutiny and  observation one comes to the realization that nothing  in nature is really still. Forces are at work while friction  and tension permeate all, including the very act of  seeing, drawing and painting. Material things have  weight, volume, mass, color, position and a  relationship to each other. These perceptions are as  fleeting as the light that transforms what and how we  see. Perhaps, still life paintings are a way to salvage  something from the unremitting process of entropy  and decay, a way of bringing temporary permanence  to that which is fleeting.  

    These paradoxes drew me to still life painting. I find  that still life presents infinite arrangements. I am able  to manipulate both the reality at hand and the formal  elements of painting color, line, tone and composition. It has come to represent the essence of  what painting has always been, that which is still,  visual and silent. It is an echo of our existence and  the trace of our passing."
