........ Wunderkammer, literally ‘wonder-cabinet’, is a German word for a cabinet that held a collection of curiosities. With origins in the Renaissance, Wunderkammern continued to be popular through the Victorian era. Fossils, minerals, plants, or paintings might have filled these cabinets. The proximity of objects inside the Wunderkammern creates formal and conceptual connections that might not occur outside that context. In my studio I keep old encyclopedias, drawings, photocopies and other ephemera that I use as a personal "cabinet of curiosities." I leaf through these disparate sources when working on new paintings, revisiting images and ideas.
