The Everyday series has transpired from my desire to ambitiously create one new painting for every day of my working schedule (ie. 5 days a week). I started with the series in January 2014 and quickly realised that by doing a painting a day will keep me from completing any other work… I pursued it anyway. Below is the outcome of what I’ve accomplished thus far (End March 2014).
My ambitious nature is not the only reason why I so eagerly had to create these works. The works from the Everyday series are inspired by objects/ articles / items I’m surrounded by on a daily basis. I think of these objects as treasures, some linked to my own memory and sentiment with others being completely random every day utensils found in my home. I’m a collector of things, with a love for bottles and random ornaments. I tend to believe that the value of these objects will disappear when my time is done on earth. By capturing these objects and presenting them as paintings, I attempt to capture my emotional attachment for the object with the belief that these objects will eventually be valued, resonate and remain with the next collector (of things).
