I paint manufactured surreal scenes by juxtaposing various forms of visual vocabularies. I am interested in the tone, mood, sense, and atmospheres that give the viewer the feeling of being in an otherworld, although these sensations are not far removed from their perception in the real world. I shape the figures I’ve introduced to my recent work to be genderless, reminiscent of virtual characters. The figure yields to the space’s formal composition yet infuses it with the subtle yet sublime breath of organic life, anticipating the dystopian post-technological era.
