The Man Under the Coffee Table
This piece was inspired by a book called One Hundred
and One Ways, by Mako Yoshikawa. My story isn't her story,
but what I personalized about her novel was the strong presence
of a person in the daily parts of your life, even when, for all
intents and purposes, they are not really part of your existence
in any real way. This painting is best understood if you watch
it while listening to Dave Matthew's Band's song "Spoon."
You'll really get it if you have unresolved relationships rattling
around in your brain.
