Portfolio > paintings 2009-present

In my paintings of observed and invented space and architecture, I construct and excavate spaces that look simultaneously inhabited and abandoned. Combining modern modular structures with antique building fragments that expose a pentimento of eroded, aging surfaces, I reflect recurrent cycles of corrosion and repair as well as individual efforts of embellishment that might be a neighbor to neglect.
The particularities of India, the inspiration for most of my paintings, are revealed through unique architectural and spatial characteristics, a layering of ancient and modern and an often uncanny use of color.
