Artist Statement

The moments I capture in my paintings and collages feel uneasily still, like holding your breath, not knowing what comes next. They evoke film stills or fragments of dreams, with a mood that is at once disconcerting and romantic, even sexy.

My work begins with a dramatic scene -- couples cloaked and seemingly lit from within -- combined with ordinary things -- a book, a tissue box, moths. After photographing, I pare down, layer, amplify, tangle and distort the images to discover something both familiar and fantastic. By allowing them to develop in unplanned ways, I create images that oscillate between abstraction and representation, real and unreal, desire and unease. I try to surprise myself.
