2005 PAINTINGS

x

In 2004, while having my first solo show in New York at a Brooklyn gallery, I had the chance to see an exhibition held concurrently at the Brooklyn Museum called "Open House," a show featuring over 200 artists currently working in the borough. While my work seemed to fit in more or less with that of the other Williamsburg galleries up and down the street, it was almost surreal to hop on the subway and go in ten minutes from the BM over to My Show -- primarily because of an overwhelming sense that I was on the opposite end of an emotional spectrum from much of the work in the museum. I didn't necessarily think that was bad, and I have been asking myself since how I can go further in identifying those things that are especially important to me and taking advantage of painting's inherent strengths. These paintings were the beginning of my response.
