Left Behind: exhibition opening October 19


The work in this exhibition is, for the most part, about the things we leave behind when we're gone. Although I'm exploring the theme of death and decay, the paintings are not provocative in a grotesque way. My interest is in the meaning that material effects can take on, merely because of their connection to the person who once owned them.

I hope to see you at the opening on October 19!

Chrystia Freeland's portrait for Rhodes House, Oxford, UK

Last fall I received a commission from the RP (Royal Society of Portrait Painters) in the UK: a portrait of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, for Rhodes House in Oxford. The portrait is now hanging above the Head Table in Milner Hall, alongside Nelson Mandela, Cecil Rhodes, and the Second Century founders. I am delighted and honoured to share these photos of the painting as I photographed it, and as it now looks in its frame at Rhodes House.
