ARTIST STATEMENT 2022 After spending nearly two years in or near my home, I discovered details in viewpoints I used to drive by daily and identified subjects for my paintings while walking through local streets and hillsides. I visited and photographed each of my favorite spots several times before identifying which colors and compositions to explore. Some of the trees and plants have become recurring characters in my work and the resulting paintings feel like portraits of friends I watched grow and change through seasons. As a group, they celebrate the qualities of light and outdoor living that I love about Los Angeles and that locals and visitors alike can recognize as specific to this city.
My paintings are representational depictions of places I encounter and document, later comparing the photographic images to my memory of the space. The resulting images are interpretations of these memories with details added and subtracted throughout the process. Foreground silhouettes are simplified and assigned colors that suit the overall palette and interrupt or frame the colorful skies beyond. The paintings are visual responses to my past and current homes and stem from observations of basic daily encounters that are commonly overlooked. Since returning to Los Angeles (my hometown) in 2015, I have been focusing on representing the magical light and diverse landscapes of this city, resulting in portraits of viewpoints and neighborhoods that I frequent and love.
