My recent paintings have developed into a series that takes on the subject of a picnic. Individual paintings depict images of a single figure in landscape. These subjects are well explored through the history of painting, and I am using these fairly cliché themes to explore ideas of originality. By embracing my devout worship of canonized painters, and their paintings, my practice is a performance of the uncomfortable task of making original paintings. There is an element of humor in the work, as I find humor an easy fix for mundane situations. Recently I have been working with the idea of multiples to amplify ideas in the work. The picnic has a ‘night version’.
