My work is inspired by an intimate contemplation of multigenerational poverty. Rooted in the Western still life genre, the imagery is based on personal family artifacts and domestic scenes, while often including the representation of inexpensive, nonnutritive food – illustrating the allure of false bounty. The varying lighting scenarios offer moments of beauty and illumination, but also include abstract shadows and reflections, symbolizing the fleeting stability offered by the phenomena of class mobility.
Thank you for following my work!
