I use whatever metals I can find, and I consider myself both an artist and eco-friendly recycler.
“I started from a photograph that has been preserved (intentionally or not). The painting is distorted in a way to show the inaccuracy of the memory inspired from fading memories, moments of time, and personal narratives. Distortions are used to emphasize how the memory, that was collected with the camera, can change over time and also emphasizes how the picture might not tell the whole story and can be misleading.”
“Kitchen Baking was taken from a photo of my mom. This painting exemplifies the use of distortion to change a memory. It represents a personal memory of when I was told, ‘Get your head out of the clouds.’ It also evokes memories of my daughter and I baking together, licking the bowl, and enjoying our time.”
“Excitement goes with a new car as the new owner shares the experience with those closest to them. It reminds me of the time when my parents brought home a new green station wagon with brown paneling. All seven children piled in and took an exciting ride. I sat in the back and looked where we had been.”
