My paintings implant ordinary objects with psychological meanings, implying a human presence through depictions of accumulated collections. These collections, ranging from books to junk drawers to piles of empty boxes, focus on the oscillation between private meaning and public presentation. Closed (and often blank) books have the potential to contain anything- primers, secrets, romances, how-to guides, theories, handbooks for improvement. They remain closed: an impenetrable façade, or conversely, a blank slate open to any interpretation. When text is present, it is both invented and extracted from the original text on the books. These small groups of words function as short poems, offering hints at the content of the books and steering the painting towards additional meanings. Mirrors are present in some paintings, though the doubled images are never true duplicates. The text changes, perspectives and colors shift, and the divide between real and reflected widens. The paintings pivot between personal resonance and public consumption, reality and invention, fixed meaning and open interpretation.
