About

Being a printmaker who is also a painter who admires printmakers who paint, I wanted to reimagine the works of one of the iconic painter/printmakers of the past whose work appeals to my sense of the brand of absurd that lies just below the surface of daily life. Bruegel's work explores the earthy, unsentimental rituals of daily life in the Netherlands over 500 years ago. Grime, spoilage, waste, excess, violence, and abject sloth are all wantonly laid out on the canvas, displaying the harsh reality of life out for all to see.
