The Stars are in Shock
When I find a personal connection to a found object,
I have the chance of making a good painting,
Cultivate a reverence for the unseen and discarded.
Provide the object with as much dignity as possible.
Find the precarious balance between the reckless and overstudied.
The less signs of human intervention in a piece,
the more the authenticity of the objects are revealed.
The fragility and reclamation of my work strives
to find a part of what is the best within us.
Compassion and Inclusiveness.
