My work focuses on the issue of containment – the human desire for the safety of enclosure and structure vs. the terror of possible entrapment. In my paintings, an array of containers- which are at times metaphoric, at times literal - suggest that a container can protect, imprison or do both.
There are a number of series on my website: Connect / Disconnect, Interstices, Eggs, Apparitions, and the Tension of Opposites. The theme, however, remains constant – the ambiguity of containment in our lives as well as the uncertain boundaries between protection, safety and entrapment.
