"The book Square Paintings is made from a selection of my oil paintings made between 2001 and 2012. Painting ‘still life’ is very quiet, just like the name. I represent objects, they don’t talk, they don’t move, they don’t change except with the light. I install them in front of me, building a little ‘set’, and then I paint them. The most recent paintings represent things I have constructed, so they look a bit different because people don’t know what the objects are and the paintings look less like ‘still life’ paintings even though they are."
