    “Crise” was painted in a directionless time for me creatively. In French, “crise” means “crisis,” which is where I felt I was with my paintings. I wanted to push my use of colors further into the boundaries of what worked together or didn’t. Going back and forth between grayed-out tones and bright pops of color, what emerged from this painting was a shattered stained glass window. It felt like a crystallization of the crazy news that was coming in every day with the #metoo movement and the stories coming out of the White House along with a new chapter of being exclusively a painter without a backup job.
