In the average person’s every day life, the mundane, regular objects in which we interact are frequently overlooked; what is eaten, walked on, or sat in are usually not thought about in any dedicated manner. With an acute attention to the banal, meticulous paintings take shape as a response to the culture in which I am completely immersed. The series of paintings, entitled Take a Seat – The Chairs of December, utilizes cultural material: the local daily news paper, juxtaposed with portraits of specific chairs in which I interacted with in the month of December, 2012. Rather than focusing on the ordinary objects as still life, I choose to present them as individuals within a frame, exalting them to their potential value in the daily lives of every person. By focusing on the objects that are frequently overlooked, the viewer is forced to consider what is often taken for granted in life, illustrating the importance of the ordinary and the magnificence of the mundane.
