My work as an artist is about the counterpoint between the mundane and the transcendent, the immediate and the timeless. I am moved by the unseen world (is there an unseen world?), the ache of unanswerable questions, the vastness and the tininess of the universe. I am filled with silent wonder, pondering big questions, yet anchored firmly in the here and now, in the details of daily life, of family life, of children’s questions, and in the minuscule (yet glorious) bits of dust and debris found in the corners of our house.
I feel keenly aware simultaneously of vast expanses of time and space, as well as the incredible power and urgency of the present moment.
My projects, while looking different from each other aesthetically (from portraits, to photographed handwriting/still lifes, to macro images of dust) all follow this thread.
