"I examine various dichotomies through a range of object/subject contrasts. Interested in both spatial suggestion and patterned flatness, my work is suspended between manipulated still life and abstraction. While the imagery balances between the organic and human-made, the work is grounded by autobiographical selections to create “visual journal entries”. This literary reference is not coincidental but relates directly to my work as a poet." - Lisa Tubach
