|I feel any object contains multiple associations that are woven throughout
our psyche - allegories that speak to us on many levels - emotional,
intellectual, or directly to the soul. These object associations
create a subliminal and complex, yet eloquent, language for visual expression.
An intentional surrealism.
Most of my subject matter deals with spiritual, scientific, and metaphysical
topics — understandings gained through perpetual curiosity about
the nature of our existence. Just as dreams can be intensely candid
and surreal, so are my paintings: from nightmares born of fears to
the bliss of 'just being'. Dualities contrast
between the surreal and realistic rendering, drawing dreamlike imagery
closer to our every-day world.
