Artist Statement: 'Unshakable Gaze' -- My work in conservation forces me to look intently into other artists’ works. I have trained my eye to inspect intimately art objects in order to understand their physical qualities, to appreciate their aesthetic value, and to recognize their various levels of meaning as I evaluate any visible changes brought about by time. I derive enormous pleasure from contemplating images that have come alive through the interplay of shapes and colors, and light and shadows, with their nuanced surface qualities, and I truly enjoy rendering my own version of what I observe – be it a striking detail in a work of art, an arresting moment captured in a photograph, or just simple objects or quiet events witnessed in the tangible world. Beauty surrounds me and moves me to produce representational works of art like these shown in this gallery.
