“For me, painting must be a spiritual experience. The things I paint are somewhat mundane, fruits, flowers, people in their homes and going about their days. These are all just regular things, yet, underneath that there is always this edge. There is an implied emotion, a visceral reality which is a fragment of all the tragedy and triumph we call the human condition. I work to show how every ordinary object and situation can be a vessel and expression of that which is uniquely human. In my work, I struggle to undermine the superficiality of the commonplace with intensity of emotional expression; revealing how any object can become the symbol and source manifesting the collective experiences of our species.”
I have to say, I’m really enjoying series eight of Doctor Who. Eleven’s storyline was wearing on me, and I was a little apprehensive after the series opener, but the proceeding two episodes have been brilliant! Fangirling hard today.
