Pamplemousse on TinfoilMemento Mori - Artist Statement

This series, on the surface, is an exploration of texture and colour when it comes into contact with light, but it is also a contemplation of transience.  Light is as insubstantial and transient as it is transformative:  The inanimate and ordinary are lit up and are momentarily made extraordinary; colours that were previously invisible become apparent; the mundane becomes beautiful.  Through the use of glass, reflective surfaces, and translucent flesh, which is in itself symbolically transient, I attempt to capture the ephemeral. The fruit and other organic materials in these paintings serve as a memento mori: a reminder of the brevity of life, the inevitability of death, and the need to enjoy life while it lasts.
