I approach my work with a naturalistic styling and a strong sense of minimalism and order.
I paint a wide variety of vintage and antique objects including typewriters, books, clocks, projectors and cameras among other common technology and gadgets. As subjects, they have built-in narrative – they tell stories. Translating them to painting creates an intimate, slower viewing experience. My hope is that in the paintings a viewer can find big picture ideas and even personal histories and stories.
The straight forward compositions break the objects down to simple shapes and designs. My painting technique, adding multiple layers of paint and minute but still painterly detail, creates a near-photorealist aesthetic. I choose to paint the objects because, put simply, painting is transformative.
