The Imagery I create comes from an interest in combining female iconography with still life painting. Each image is an amalgamation of various attractions such as Art History, my back yard, the salad bar at Stop and Shop, retro kitsch, etc. The image usually starts with myself, or with a friend, and then gets taken apart and reassembled with other things. Although the results may seem surreal, I am more inspired by the Surrealists techniques of tapping into the subconscious rather than by actual Surrealist painting. I have a desire to personalize idealized notions of beauty and importance. To embellish icons with humor and a little absurdity but also within those details to suggest a narrative that is mysterious and atmospheric.
