Album: Tranquility of the East 1/6

Album Description
My lifelong love for the art and style of the Far East compelled me to create these still lifes. The objects reveal their stories to me as I paint, and the stories add a depth and resonance to the works. The Asian aesthetic is solidly rooted, yet filled with light and air; is down to earth, yet magical. These works are also about color: a scarlet kimono contrasts with deep lacquers, vibrant blue glazes sing next to orange and gold fabric; a hand dyed indigo robe sets off a brilliant white fan, creating unexpected harmonies.
