“I love working from life with direct observation because it is tangible and concrete. However, there is something that lies behind the obvious, a sense of mystery and wonder. Whether it is the model in the studio, a stream in woods or a crowded downtown scene, life has a sparkle and shimmer. I love connecting with that and trying to get an expression of it directly in my work. I am always searching for a quality of stillness in my work. There is a profound and serene joy that washes over when the boundary between subject and object is lost. My hope is that my viewers get a sense of this when looking at my work”—Dominique Medici
