MY PURPOSE IS TO CAPTURE A FLEETING MOMENT, THE MOMENT OF BEING ILLUMINATED BY AN IDEA, THE SECOND OF SURRENDER, OR A PAUSE; POIGNANT MOMENTS IN THE JOURNEY OF LIFE WHERE THE AUTHENTIC SELF IS MOST CLEARLY REVEALED.

I TRY TO DEMONSTRATE THE SOLIDITY OF THE SEEMINGLY UNTOUCHABLE, WHILST IN CONTRAST PAINTING THE LITERALLY PHYSICALITY AS IT REALLY IS - TEMPORARY, DISAPPEARING, IMPERMANENT - USING A REALISTIC PAINTING STYLE TO EMPHASIZE DEPTH OF FIELD, THE WAY OUR EYES UNWITTINGLY OBSERVE EVERY DAY, FOCUSING ON JUST ONE POINT AS ALL ELSE FALLS AWAY.
