Body Bag Chechnya After Matisse Green Still Life Lonely



Artist's Statement

These four paintings represent efforts to find topics and styles that free me to paint closer to my emotions. The two soldiers sewing Body Bag Chechnya are based on a photograph that moved me deeply. Green Still Life was made using methods from grisaille. After Matisse helped me found my drawing methods, leading to Lonely, a memory from childhood.
