I feel that a contemporary still-life should break with the tradition of cluttered compositions in favor of an ordered, controlled arrangement of similar objects more like what I experience in everyday life. Nature, to me, is repetition.
Sometimes the objects are straightforward, other times the surfaces are cut and carved to increase visual activity, and also to imply meaningful connections.
I frequently work in series, producing groups of related drawings. Series work allows me to work on many small drawings rather than one large artwork, a method I prefer.
