Art Description

Collage: Acrylic, Paper, Stain on Wood.

"Recollection" (2018)
acrylic, painted paper collage and wood stain on wood, 24x24 inches

This piece is part of a coordinated set of 6 works, each conceptually different yet similar in color and appearance. Recollection is about looking back on life experiences, nostalgia and memoirs - how memory fades over time and comes back to us in odd moments, when we can understand them, for better or worse. Personally, the thought came from contemplating memories of childhood through my parents' eyes. Being a parent myself, I sense that I am going through similar stages of life that my parents also experienced. We may have observed these phases growing up, but only from a child's perspective. Recollection is about calling back these memories and moments from another point of view.



What you see is what you get. I take great care to get clear and color-correct photographs of my work, but it always looks better in person. Please see additional images for detail shots, art in context, etc. Dimensions reflect the size of the art itself.

All of my smaller paintings on wood include a frame (custom or artist-made) and ready to hang, unless requested otherwise. Some works on canvas include a frame, but most of them do not require it - usually I will continue the painting around the edges. If you have questions or concerns about framing, please ask me for more options. I’m more than happy to accommodate.

All of my work is made with archival quality techniques and materials, and each gets a nice coat of varnish when they’re finished (usually matte). My smaller paintings are on 1/2” birch or oak hardwood boards, and gallery-wrapped canvases for larger work. Everything is made for permanence, so you can expect it to last forever.

I do not provide artist statements for work, because I feel the work and its title is enough to start the conversation with viewers. In my work, the viewer plays a role in finishing the art, giving it life, visibility and intellectual value. However, many of my pieces do have a story, a symbolism or reference. If you’re interested in learning more about a particular work, please contact me directly or include a note in your offer.

Thank you for your interest!
