Across the Universe

Piece description from the artist

Early on I was drawn to still life, as objects have emotional power of their own. I started honing in on toys, mostly old, vintage, which suggested to me the idea of moving through time. They struck a chord, with notes of nostalgia, sadness, fear, and laughter. This subject matter has produced work that is in the service of my interest in, memories of, and reflections on childhood. Our past profoundly affects the present and childhood is the most influential time in one’s life. My latest works touch on these universal themes.

In this painting abstracting from these childhood objects takes them away from the literal, suggesting our own unique experiences. This abstraction serves as a metaphor leading to our personal interpretations of their meaning. This painting suggests bringing past and present together in one expansive, dream-like space.
