Etchings & aquatints
The subjects of my etchings are interiors, still lives, landscapes, and figures absorbed in a quiet activity. My work serves as a form of witness to intimacy as much as to moments of solitude, reflection, and interiority. The figures I include depict my family and friends, situated in countries I have lived in (France, Ireland, New England) or visited like Greece or India. I am sensitive to the appeal of figures in a landscape, to the interactions between them and their surroundings. My landscapes, whether figurative or abstract, are the expression of an emotion caused by what I see, but also informed by memory, and personal history. Sometimes, I make etchings after works of great artists whose images I have looked at again and again -- another way for me to explore intimacy and influence.
