My paintings come from a point after photorealism and minimalism, for I am drawn to the intensity of photorealism and the detachment of minimalism. My subjects are often banal and trite as is my life and are scenes of my life. With my paintings and through the process of making them, I aim to study the relationship between the scene and me which is the phenomenon only I can perceive as the scenes constantly change,and so do I.
