2009, Oil on canvas, 35"w x 65"h
The ways in which we define ourselves, through imagery and objects, are fascinating to me. As I walk through museums, I am struck by the separation I feel from the objects. Even though the rooms are categorized into floors, display cases, and didactics, all of the artifacts tend to flow into one another. The feeling is further accentuated when I get my pictures home or remember my experiences afterwards. This division between the meaning of the object and the meaning of the presentation is the basis for my current body of work.
