Statement of Work

Kurosawa’s film Dreams has a scene where a beautiful snow spirit drapes a fallen hiker with layer upon layer of shimmering fabric. These blankets, metaphor for snow, fatigue, and death, despite the warmth and comfort, must be shaken off for the hiker to survive. My recent paintings explore these different connotations of drapery as a still life subject.
