Through a painting practice focused on representation and mimetic rendering, my work addresses illusive moments of everyday experience. By aesthetically assessing my domestic space, I have developed a body of watercolour paintings that depict isolated subjects, such as residual objects and fragments. Referring to the genre of still life and trompe-l’oeil, my small format compositions are descriptive, precise and diaristic. A testimony to the lived experience, painting from life produces nuance and ambiguity which challenges the search for truth, and any notion of realism. My work is an anthropological investigation which explores the fundamentally human attachment to the material world. The relevance of this is emphasized by the social circumstances of the pandemic in which these paintings have been conceptualized.
