"The Thick Of It" Hall Street Gallery Savannah, GA., 2010
My work embraces the subtleties of those moments when our lives suddenly become clear or instantly change direction. Whether a fleeting moment of introspection or a recurring emotion seeking an outlet, figural images mix with familiar shapes to articulate new and unexpected spaces. The figure in the space of these complicated worlds creates the narrative and visual tension in my work. The presentation of the work is intensified with a pervasive voyeuristic intrusion, framing moments of intimacy for unapologetic consumption, while non-narrative structure opens the viewing to a wider emotional experience. The title of each piece is a point of departure for the viewer providing an idea of what the work is about.
