About The Artwork

“Love is paying attention” -Fairfield Porter, Artist “We never look at just one thing, we are always looking at the relation between things and ourselves. Our vision is continually active, continually moving, continually holding things in a circle around itself, constituting what is present to us as we are.” -John Berger, Art Critic This work is about domestic life and the memories attached to that- how memories influence you and yet are so unclear and ever-changing. The primary focus of this work are my two children and home life. Everyone was once a child, so everyone has experienced these universal emotions and memories. As a child, everything is vivid and intense, emotions are high and low, and everything is new. For better or worse your home life influences you for the rest of your life. For me, this work reconciles the differences between idealism and reality. There is idealism which is something most people strive for but then there is the reality of the experience. It was the painter Fairfield Porter who said, "There is no conflict between reality and ideality." This is because everything is different and always changing and that is certainly true of life.

My work depicts ultramodern matters of domestic life. Documenting life covertly, I use my phone’s camera to capture our relationships with each other and daily life. Technology has become a part of our relationships. It influences how we interact with one another, where our attention lies, how our bodies are bent, and how we communicate. There is a palpable sense of longing and at times frustration that I try to capture with my photos. Attention is divided. When you connect to some things, you disconnect from others, those choices shape our lives. Similarly, technology has influenced our depiction of domestic life. Social media has idealized family life, but I try to illustrate moments of both simultaneous disconnect and connections. In an era of curated Facebook feeds highlighting the best in family life, there is a saccharine image of family life at odds with the distraction of the digital age. It was the artist Fairfield Porter who said, “Love is paying attention”. His work was always about attending to the experience of looking. This is what I consider while viewing my own home life through the screen of the phone, framing up those moments first through a 3 x 5 inch screen and then through my drawings and paintings.
