Typical. is a series of thirty small paintings that documents items which have been put slightly out of place or upset by the people that last interacted with them. Drawing from the wit of artists like Richard Wentworth and Gabriel Orozco, the handling of materials by painter Wayne Thiebaud, and the commentary on everyday life by philosopher Henri Lefebvre, I used gouache on panel, taking liberty with line, shape and color to highlight small things that people have upset or misplaced. Through this work, I seek to encourage the viewer to explore a little more about what it means to be a human every day.
