A lot has been brought into perspective this year as we all face new challenges and adapt to new ways of moving and interacting with the people around us. As an artist I've been given an opportunity to reconsider what it means to create work during this time. I feel a renewed sense of gratitude for the hopefulness that art can provide on a daily basis, a new perspective, a different way of seeing. However, the biggest realization has been felt beyond my personal experience – it's been more apparent in our communities. I’ve been so reenergized by partnerships between friends, family, collectors, galleries, institutions in the art world, and beyond. There's been a togetherness in our communities that resonates with a new sense of appreciation and joy.
This series embraces reflection and collection. Free from old routines, a sense of play emerged that was inspired by everyday objects and revisited places. What was once ordinary revealed its inner spirit, giving way to new consideration of colour and form. In a year where all expectations were cast aside, these compositions provided a place for curiosity and optimism.
