Mango Corner

Categories
In painting still lives, I am painting relationships. Fraught, volatile, awkward, or joyful, my objects become characters in their narrative.

Mango Corner is another still life on paper in the early grad school series of paintings. Taken with the pattern of the cloth, I wanted to make it flatter and more decorative than my naturalistic observational training encouraged. The crowding of the objects in a corner gave me the challenge and the opportunity to deal with the space around it as a whole, and try to make it work as an independent entity.
