STATEMENT

 

MY WORK DEALS WITH OBSERVING FAMILIAR OBJECTS IN DETAIL. THE INTENSITY OF SUCH CLOSE OBSERVATION HAS LED ME TO PRODUCE SEVERAL SERIES OF WORKS.  EACH SERIES CONTINUES AS I ADDRESS THESE THINGS AGAIN AND AGAIN WITH NEW INSIGHT.


THE BASIC COMPOSITION IS MOST IMPORTANT.  THE PLACEMENT MAY BE FORMAL OR SEEMINGLY CASUAL - A GLIMPSE CAPTURED IN PASSING.  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT EACH STEP OF THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING A FINISHED PIECE BE SATISFYING FOR ME.  BECAUSE I WORK SLOWLY, A MULTILEVEL DIALOGUE DEVELOPS BETWEEN THE IMAGE AND ME.  I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS LEVEL OF CONCENTRATION CAN BE DAUNTING, BUT I REALLY DO NOT KNOW ANY OTHER WAY TO WORK. 


MY PERSONAL VISION HAS BEEN SHAPED BY THE HISTORY OF STILL LIFE.  I HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY THE LUSHNESS OF THE VISUAL AND TACTILE EXPERIENCE THAT THE DUTCH MASTERS PORTRAYED, THE COOL ABSTRACTED FORMS THAT INTRIGUED MORANDI, THE ENERGY OF MATISSE’S TABLETOPS AND INTERIORS, THE PATTERN, COLOR AND INTIMACY OF BONNARD, THE RIGOR AND UNRELENTING INVESTIGATION OF EVERYDAY EXISTENCE BY ALICE NEEL, AVIGDOR ARIKHA AND LUCIEN FREUD, AND OF COURSE, THE DARING COMPOSITION AND PASTEL MASTERY OF DEGAS AND MARY CASSATT.  ADDITIONALLY, MY INTEREST IN PLANTS AND GARDENS, FABRICS AND SEWING, TRAVEL, AND MY YOUTHFUL INVOLVEMENT WITH ICE SKATING (AND ALL THE OTHER STUFF I”VE DONE!) HAVE ALL IMPACTED MY WORK.
