I’ve heard it said that choice is our one true possession. My Isolated female figures are Seekers who are possibly wounded, lost in life’s pilgrimages or even misled. They are shown at the point of conscious choice, in the midst of needing to be rescued, but also feeling trapped or driven by their previous choices. Choice, coupled with the idea of vulnerability and tempered with hope or viewed through the lens of weakness, is more appealing to me than idealization. As a contemporary representational painter, my art deals with life’s experiences as expressed through the physical form. But while I’m passionate about portraying the human struggle regarding choice, rather than providing answers I am more inclined to ask questions.
