“This painting possibly represents visual metaphors that emerge from the examination of common objects from an intimate perspective. The isolated object is a device for the examination of identity and an examination of the human effects on our planet. By focusing on common possessions the objects take on notions of greater ideas. These ideas relate to our addiction to possessions and our obsession with self preservation through them. The solitary or sometimes juxtaposed object has the ability to take the viewer beyond the ordinary and into a notion of metaphoric possibilities.”
