I think of my work as a diary of the mundane. Like a tourist even at home, armed with my camera: I collect my compositions and subject matter from my immediate surroundings, and the places I visit, and the objects I collect. I look for strong light, and bright color – elements to excite me as a painter.

Conceptually, I am interested in the landscape and objects of contemporary life: the spaces, places, and things that exist around us. I am drawn to urban decay, rusty metal, old cars and trucks, beat up old baseballs, padlocks, oil cans. I am  also attracted to more sensual things like oysters and flowers, and in the spirit of traditional still life painting, I have included them in my repertoire.

I also find a lot of imagery when I’m driving in my car – the freeways, the construction, bright orange pylons, piles of earth, blue tarps, big trucks, the lay of the land and the road. I guess I’m a bit of an environmentalist - I am alarmed by the rate of speed our world is changing right in front of our eyes. I sometimes feel nostalgic for the old architecture and the open fields of the past, but I also like to think of my paintings as a way to slow down the present – a visual meditation on the world we live in.

Shipping and insurance estimated at $250 has been added to the price of this piece. If you should choose to pick the painting up at our gallery the price will be discounted $250.
