The image of the seated figure is one I find myself returning to often, in both paintings and sculpture. I am fascinated by this position in which the figure seems to have given in, or surrendered, to life's circumstances; it appears exhausted by being. The pose is closed and open, strong and weak, heavy and light, all at the same time. These dualities create a tension I find inspiring.

Sometimes materials can inspire; sometimes a space restriction or infinite space can challenge, and at times, music can give you unprecedented ideas. I was lucky that all of these came together to give me Vine Woman.

Vine Woman wove herself into my mind one night while I listened to a young composer Jeff Stanek play his piece Winding Leaves. The following day, I immediately got materials for an armature and started collecting vines and branches. A few days and some sore hands later, Vine Woman was placed on a nature trail for all to enjoy. Eventually, however, she will return back to nature.

This series of paintings is based on my relationship with my younger sister. We have grown up together, then grown apart, then grown back together again, stronger than before. Throughout the years, we have developed a deep friendship and enjoy many shared memories.

In Lullaby I, II & III, the female figure seems unaware of a child that is so close by. The child is precious – it seems to float, suspended by a thread, like a jewel. Still, the woman is oblivious: busy trying to see herself, she's unable to see this object of value hovering at arms length. Maybe, if she could forget about herself for a moment, she would discover it.
