The painting depicts the artist's sister, who is the only immediate family member born outside of Texas. She sits between a West Texas landscape and a table array of sushi, representative of her personal interest in foreign cultures as opposed to that of her own heritage. The figure lies in shadow to accentuate the distance between her and each of these influences.
The Western series is my latest body of work and places the figure in dreamlike Western vistas. Saturated cloudscapes and romantic tropes of the American West become littered with absurdly displaced objects like takeout food and magic eight balls. While celebrating the glossiness of Hollywood caricatures of the West, the paintings seek to compare the rugged individualism associated with the cowboy or frontiersman to the solitary nature of spiritual exploration, however cluttered with distractions and interruptions.
