Objects of Contemplation

Objects of Contemplation

The artist closely examines small complex structures formed through natural processes like accretion, branching and crystallization. Like the objects depicted, the paintings themselves take shape through systematic application of materials that over time crystallize into form. She paints rocks, coral and other objects much larger than life, which gives the artist and viewer space to investigate small details that might otherwise be overlooked. The images could be seen as literal depictions of specific and recognizable organic objects. Yet their intricate play of light and space invite the viewer not just to look at but to imaginatively travel through and lose themselves in another world. They see not just rocks, coral, or fruit, but perhaps human or animal forms, mountains or oceans, as well. The paintings are meant as objects of contemplation, to inspire the imagination, inviting the viewer to draw out their own new interpretations with each new viewing.
