Artist Statement:
In preparing for this exhibition  I spent a good deal of time considering a suitable title.   Titles, of books, movies and painting exhibitions, are a shorthand way of conveying to the audience what to expect. So rather than talk about my interest in the everyday, finding beauty in the ordinary and such,  I decided to share some of the other titles that were in contention.

  • Beauty Supply
  • Cameo Appearance
