Those of us who live in big cities are always rushing from place to place, dealing with crowds,

worrying to get to the next place we are going to punctually. We are not aware of the wonderful

world surrounding us, the ordinary objects that when really observed become icons of the world

we inhabit. Slowing down and really observing the world we live exposes us to the incredible

beauty and complexity of the most mundane objects we pass unseeingly every day.

These thoughts brought me to the series of paintings I am currently working on. As I tried to be

more aware of the world around me, I began to look at store windows which I was always

quickly walking by. I began to see the letters or symbols on these windows as well as the things

that were inside, and the reflections of the outside world; these images began to conflate. I

couldn’t differentiate among them, could not tell what was on the surface, beyond the surface,

and reflected on the surface. I realize that this vision was like our lives where past, present, and

future are often so intertwined complicated they cannot be separated.
