Simple large washed canvasses with embroidery stitched through the surface. Throughout there is a feeling of fog, air so heavy it can be stitched through. “Superficial” is a detail of a dining room table. The knife and fork fall through the foreground and the subtle chromatic details of the tablecloth keep it lively. “Hang” is by far my favorite, wispy windblown and forlorn. Bittersweet fluttering clothes hang loose from the drying lines and drift in the thick stormy air. Some of the other works including the floral still liife are forgettable, but if these were the steps he had to take to make a few masterpieces they are completely forgiven. Thank you.
