I am interested in using realism as a way to explore the sculptural qualities in painting- specifically how paintings exist in the viewer's physical space as well as how paintings exist in their own pictorial world. 

The unusual display of the paintings is intentional, the neutral white background is intentional, the subject being life-size and realistic is intentional- all to emphasize the contrast between the pictorial qualities of painting and the object-like qualities of painting.
