My work depicts ultramodern scenes of domestic life. Creating large scale paintings (some 7 feet tall), I use family life as a reference. Documenting life covertly, I use my phone’s camera to capture our relationships with each other and daily life. Social media has idealized family life, but I try to depict moments of both simultaneous disconnect and connection. Painting for me is both an embrace of and resistance to domestic life. The work’s narrative portrays the contradiction in my own desires for home and normalcy versus the unrealistic demands imposed on motherhood. There is a saccharine image of family life depicted in pop culture. The expectation is that mothers are to provide a perfect future and produce lives of happiness and fulfillment for their children. The dichotomy of the family is emotional closeness yet frequently, missed connections. Often, someone's attention is pulled away by technology as they check their phone, watch TV, or are simply lost in thought. When you connect to some things, you disconnect from others, those choices shape our lives. The painter, Fairfield Porter said, “Love is paying attention.” My work is about those small moments that linger.

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.
