About My Work:

Collecting is a part of human nature that is observed across every demographic of people, in every time and culture. Not all collections are physical, however, and some are only held in our memories. The relationship between the collection of memories and the collection of items is what I explore in my painting through cut-out images of stuffed animals, as I believe them to be one of the best examples of this idea. My work focuses on how our physical collections of items both preserve our memories and construct our identities.

In my view, painting these huge, cut-out teddy bears gives them some significance to the viewer that they might not otherwise have viewing the actual source items. Significance and attention that the original collection might not have conjured on its own. Choosing to paint them at a large scale and cut-out without any background makes us consider them and brings them that importance.

We collect and own and keep to create a legacy, to affirm our identity, to leave something physical behind. I’m painting to create a new legacy for myself. I want to be remembered, and I want to remember.
