I reproduce recognizable inanimate objects by portraying them in unrecognizable situations rooted in my own experiences. By altering the scale and color, I create a visual tension between the familiar objects and how they are functioning. My paintings symbolically embody sadness and despair allowing for an experience that is authentic. While confrontational, I paint visceral awareness that suggests something happening beneath the surface of our immediate understanding.
