      My work addresses the traditional, often figurative and romantic notions of beauty in conversation with the quotidian object.  It takes on a sort-of absurd construction of dialogue. There's a drama that occurs  between the everydayness of contemporary objects and the aura of historical painting.  It stages the easy indifference of the present propped up by the glory of the past.  This contrariety is where my work finds its legs.  The space between store-bought tennis balls, concrete, duct tape and a really meaty oil painting is what I am currently interested in.
