“Painting is a means of excavation. My work starts with a found image, often discarded at an estate sale or buried online. Whether it is a forgotten family snapshot or a stack of dishes, the objects are reanimated through the act of painting. In the process, lines, light, and details are dramatized and diminished, uncovering new meaning that encourages a dialogue across time.”
