My oil paintings transform glistening 🍊🥝🍋🍅🍑 into its own vibrant world. Hyper-magnifying the inside of ripe fruit in oil paint pays homage to traditional still life painting while reimagining and distorting the genre. Varying the scale of my paintings and the species of fruit further heightens the enigma. They blur the boundaries between abstraction and representation, the microcosmic and macrocosmic, attraction and repulsion, and whimsy and the scientific. The imagery is readily identified as organic but from there the imagination can take over.
My artwork is internationally collected and has been featured in exhibitions in the United States, Italy, and Portugal since 2006. I am currently represented by gallery43 in Roswell, Georgia, and Colorida Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal.
