Flaming Katy, 2020




This is a simple still life composition in a shallow space with a grounding floor plane and perpendicular wall plane. The palette is limited to a few naturalistic earth tones allowing the orange flowers to pop. Flaming Katy is the common name for the kalanchoe houseplant. The work is equal parts abstraction and representation and underscores the formal relationships between the disparate parts. In a more grounded manner than some of my more ethereal compositions, the painting emphasizes the physical and conceptual aspects of the creative process. Objects and places I happen to come across in my travels become grist for more elevated rumination on painterly process, history and experience.
