" Wandering. Looking for something to follow. Hoping to find something to prove that everything is profoundly meaningful. Some sort of singular theory of life. In this quest, I seem only to stumble upon the inconsequential things. An annoyance, some confusion, a mistake that takes a long time to clean up, a stubbed toe, a dirty dish, hair—all of the little things that pile up until it becomes clear that the passage of time has been present only in the form of passing distractions. Maybe there is some meaning, but it seems to be an illusion that only luck may one day unveil. It can be difficult to remain interested, excited, engaged, and true to oneself amidst the backdrop of routine, everyday life. My most recent work is about personal fantasy and escape amidst everyday experience. It is a reimagining of everyday life, based on often small, seemingly insignificant frustrations. A playful rumination on the little things, the subtleties, which can fill our lives for better or worse. Growths of the seeds of worry, fear, amusement, and minor upsets. Fruitless daydreams. It is about what a mind does with what it is given." - Jennifer Cronin
