  • The present work exhibited at New York, Marianne Boesky Gallery, Painting/Sculpture, 10 July – 9 August 2019

     
    "I have collaged a few cropped versions of the original stock photos together. I feel that the original source images look more clean and appealing and my painting looks a little creepier. There’s a darkness or a surreal spookiness that has crept in... Maybe it’s all the true crime podcasts I’ve been listening to as I made this? But seriously, part of my process is trying for this idea of beauty in the original image, and failing, and just living with the reality of the result. And ultimately, the original stock photos are surreal in their own right. They might be clean and beautiful, but they are quite haunting when you take a step back and try to figure out what is going on and why they exist.”
