(Un)Still Life
After the presidential election, I started painting almost daily still lifes as a way to focus on the “tangible” in turbulent times. The meditative practice of daily painting helped to provide structure for me, but I have also realized in doing this, that my desire for control and order is often impossible and even unnecessary. These (Un)Still Life paintings are my attempt to acknowledge that control is not always possible, nor productive. Life moves; control is an illusion.
