ANEMONES

2019

Exhausted by the heaviness of Seaside Revelations, Anemones were birthed out of a need for lightness. Simple, organic beauty inspires, just as complex theory does. After seeing the exhibition of late garden & waterlily paintings by Claude Monet at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco, I was reminded that there doesn't have to be a grand revelation for something to be worthy of reproducing over and over and over again, or for an artwork to be memorable. Anemones are a return to basic elements of drawing and painting: color, line, shape, and composition. These works also mark a shift in medium from oil painting to dry media - they are made exclusively in soft pastel on colored paper.

Anemones are for me as waterlilies were for Monet.
