This carefully arranged still life creates a dramatic interplay of light and reflection, celebrating objects that were prized by my grandmother. They speak to a lady who lived a modest life but prized the few nice pieces of crystal or china found while treasure hunting at a thrift store. Sugar Crystal is about the ritual of display and nostalgia for a past time when decorative objects were used socially to make ordinary events special. The painting evokes memories of childhood, family, and home.

Sugar Crystal was featured in the 2020 Federation of Canadian Artist’s Retro Exhibition.
