My gouache paintings are of intimate objects and interior spaces dealing with daily routine and memory.
The repetitive, meditative quality of some household tasks finds an equivalent in the actual activity of painting the scene. There is enjoyment in bringing order to a random arrangement of objects and shapes. The drama and tension between flat shapes, lines of perspective, light, shadow and color are all played out on the picture plane.
On another level, the still-life objects depicted can be seen as stand-ins for the deep human connections made in conversation in the kitchen.
