here and there 2014-17

 

The pleasure garden is a real and an imagined place, a theatre of culture that is both nature and artifice. I use a Rococo inspired dynamic space of roseate profusions, elegance & sweetness, decorative arabesques, pattern and sensual playfulness; at once serious and superficial, overflowing with an abundance of fantasy. Patterning pages and creating paradoxes of space here and there is a group of paintings that prompt—always in the present between each moment—the surprises of rambling; the comings and goings; looking this way and that: here-and-there, here-and-now, now-and-then.
