Each day the sun rises, time transpires, a storm may pass, and life goes on. Or not. This series of drawings and paintings, The Mortals, identifies and highlights disparate moments in a lifetime—either poignant or banal. This work is about time and place, the unpredictable, the precarious and the repetitive. Each image in this series represents a specific event or archetypical phase we pass through in life. I am interested in the simultaneity and randomness of milestones as well as those unspectacular instances in between. I find it fascinating how we unconsciously repeat roles and cycles of enduring love and connection.
