Painting: Watercolor, Paint, Paper on Paper, Plastic.
In this watercolor painting, I painted a friend lounging in a thrift store. The Eclectic atmosphere is represented by the array of patterns and vibrant colors.
This drawing is one of a series of works where I explore the relationship between people and space. Within this subject matter, I search for similarities between spaces, the idiosyncrasies of each, and the way people are in a place they call, or don’t call, their home. Within scenes of everyday life, I hope to highlight the underlying notion that the “everyday” is only as objective as the perspective through which it’s experienced. The places I paint and draw are filtered through an off-putting or even eerie lens, and I often abstract interiors and disrupt the space to reflect the way the familiar can seem surreal. For me, painting and drawing are intimate acts, and I use that to reflect the intimate feeling of being with people you know, or at home.
