These paintings are about things I can’t easily talk about–isolation and intimacy. They are often representations of the least public of moments, those seen only by family or a lover: waking, stepping into the shower, a dirty kitchen. They both invite intimacy and cause the discomfort of intrusion.
In interiors and still lifes I have always and primarily been concerned with the quality of light, its directions and nuances. In this series, however, I explore how the depiction of light creates mood, conveys psychological states, and reveals emotion.
