I imagine these paintings as artifacts sent back from an unknown future where the oppositional forces of the present moment— dread and upheaval, resistance and perseverance—have unfurled into an eerily familiar yet totally unrecognizable world.

The compositions accumulate from pieces of my own drawings and photographs, through which I search for evocative forms, the suggestion of figuration, and the feeling of mystery.
