Good poetry is about using the economy of language to expose the true nature of something no matter how big or small. This is what I hope to do through the language of painting—looking at the little things and the economy of how they are composed in relation to one another and hopefully exposing something nuanced about their identity or that of their owner’s identity. 06 September, 2021
