Project Description

In The Darkest Places / Gerbera, gouache, watercolor paint, pigmented inkjet print on Hahnemühle Perle 285g.sm, 50,8 x 76,2 cm.

This work is composed from a mixture of disparate elements; photographs of flowers, pornography and fashion advertising. What we see is not always what we imagine it to be. Especially true in an era of digital media which allows history to be re-written and re-created and truth is no longer an absolute.

Built on the refinement of vision, ultra contemporary in tone and beautiful from the standpoint of being “stretched representations” of well-known flowers, with “pushed” colors and drifting forms thrusting them into another realm; botanical but ethereal.” Craig Anderson, Curator and former Assistant Director for Exhibitions and Collections, Miami Art Museum.
