“I’m in a funny position. I’m a still life painter who is as fond of abstraction as realism. The seemingly random marks
and gestures of abstraction are of great interest to me. I do not celebrate the order and logic of a still life arrangement. Instead, I lean toward the randomness of abstraction. To balance this ca- sualness, I pay a great deal of attention to the rendering of the chosen objects. Ultimately, it’s a struggle between awkwardness and beauty. My hope is that this approach produces a unique tension in my work.”
