Big Kids Table
Big Kids Table is a return to childhood naivety where I desired to be grown up. A state of longing to participate in the magic that happened just out of sight. Please join me in this place of possibility where the vessels are empty but ripe to be filled with the imaginary treats.
In these new artworks I’m exploring the domestic through western mealtime ritual objects. Evoking childhood mores and lachrymose moments of adulthood. Playfully the utensils are mismatched but related. Objects are bent to create a sense of secret discomfort. Amusingly things are stacked, adding tension while asking if things are held together through invisible ties.
The images in Big Kids Table build on my previous investigations of color and objects communication with a personal, more refined approach. I created a space of quiet reflection that was mature enough to pay homage to the roots of the still life.
Thank you for taking this trip with me.
