The images in my work draw on both art historical references and the day-to-day world around me..
I attempt to bring together a synthesis of the recognizable and the abstracted so that the end result contains echoes of the familiar, but that ultimately the sources cannot be pinned down too easily. This approach gives me the flexibility to work with both image and surface without being overly indebted to either one, thus keeping my options open longer.
It is the tension between opposites that interests me. In this particular painting, the split-screen acts as a compositional device which leaves both halves in a place of an uneasy aesthetic truce, which is-both familiar and strange.
