1 Rue Sainte-Anne

I have been interested in the emotional connections people have to places. Taking my family’s home in France that is over a century old as a departure point, I made a painting that intended to simultaneously encapsulate the dilapidation of that house as well as the beauty that can be seen in this decay. I experimented with materials, objects, representation and illusion when making this work. I aimed to produce a painting where there was a suggestion of a space but one in which the viewer was immediately made aware of the two dimensionality of the canvas.
