In my work I have tried to capture and reconstruct fleeting moments of strange and quiet beauty that hold a lasting and mysterious power; passing instants of solitary reflection during travel or in a daily commute. Walking alone on a silent street, watching a passing stranger unobserved, or driving home on a dark night. The resemblance to tickets reflects the nature of these intimate moments, the perceived dullness and banality of the suburban environments betraying these often intensely emotional experiences that range from the melancholic isolation and loneliness portrayed in Edward Hopper’s paintings to the luminous joy and energy of Monet’s.
