A few photos from my newest series

I am really happy with how these turned out. The gilding (silver, gold, and copper leaf) is incredibly hard to capture in a photograph, and these photos do not do any of the pieces justice--but at least you can get an idea. The paintings are rather intricate, and fun to look at up close. The gilding pops from far away, and during different times of day. I love that an artwork can change with time. That seems to be a big part of what I am interested in.

Impossible

I am sharing this piece because I painted the moth 2 years ago. It sat on my (self proclaimed) "wall of failures", incomplete this whole time until I decided to add the Penrose triangle. I have been captivated by impossible shapes ever since I studied Gerhard Richter's Impossible Object series at the Art Institute of Chicago almost 10 years ago. I am happy to be exploring this subject in my own work.
