My paintings depict an imaginary world, its rural environments, inhabitants, and their interactions with one another. The customs, rituals, superstitions, and conflicts of this place appear fragmented, superficial glimpses of a larger narrative. My work is influenced by my perceptions of rural life growing up in the hills of southwestern Wisconsin, as well as visual experiences that continue to captivate me. I present these images; divorced from any autobiographical context or obvious symbolic intent, and let them exist simply as aesthetic elements.
