“While living in Paris for the past two summers I spent time wandering around, trying to view the city through the eyes of Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Toulouse-Lautrec. After a trip to Giverny and spending time walking through the gardens of Monet, the connection to the past was immediate. I could see the gardens, just as he did,” the artist says about the show. “I could see the beauty. The allure. I felt the same desire he had to paint what was in front of him. This show is my attempt to imagine the world through the eyes of the artists who have come before me. It’s an opportunity to envision how the world would look painted if techniques such as stenciling with aerosol were available during the times those artists painted. While Monet is the most visible in the show, influences from artists such as Andy Warhol, Van Gogh, Rachel Ruysch and Margaretha Haverman are also represented.”
