I sometimes think of my work as passive-aggressive still lives: intended to be both sweet and destructive at the same time. They have the components of a traditional still life but the subjects are often smashed or upended. This can suggest a narrative — the aftermath of a jilted lover or a domestic disturbance. They’re vanitas paintings, not just about the transitory nature of life but of relationships as well.
