ARTIST STATEMENT JULY 2014

MY PAINTINGS EXPLORE SOCIAL IDEAS THROUGH JUXTAPOSING THE ICONOGRAPHY OF ART HISTORICAL LANDSCAPE PAINTING WITH THE IMAGERY OF MODERN DAY LANDSCAPES. I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ENTIRELY ON SMALL SCALE, MOSTLY 5”X7”, OIL PAINTINGS. THE POSTCARD SIZED SCALE OF THE PAINTINGS REFLECTS THE WAY WE PERCEIVE THE WORLD USING THE SCREENS OF MOBILE DEVICES
