AROUND CORNERS

Around corners is an ongoing series of paintings I am working on. It is the places and spaces that I happen upon in my daily life that inspire me.

 

This series of work was first shown during a solo exhibit of the same title in August 2016.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Around Corners is the play on words literally and figuratively, which contrast by time. In English, the phrase “Just around the corner” is used to inspire someone to believe things will get better and to expect things will improve in the future.

The works in Around Corners are cityscape scenes from street level & around corners that I have painted from my daily adventures over the past 3 years. Scenes that are often overlooked. However viewers cherish the memories when they recognize the place.

Perhaps the absurdity is that we long for the future of what’s figuratively “around the corner” & yet forget to enjoy what is actually around the corner.
