Artist Statement

During the pandemic, I was working in increasingly small rooms of limited wall space.But painting is a tabula rasa, where it is possible to create intimate immensities. What has emerged are oils on wood panels intended to capture and seduce the eye of a distressed viewer and abstract works on handmade papers blending geometry and free gesture.

The feeling of insularity is seen in the 2021 series of still life that relate to work done in the 90’s. The paintings encapsulate how still, life has become. By juxtaposing the realism of fruits and objects to abstract shapes in silent spaces, I vivify the inanimate, acknowledging the interior life of a painting. Abstract forms and quotes from women painters are made as tangible as fruits and ceramic bowls. I am integrating contrasting genres of similar qualities, to create a special world.
