My installations and paintings are investigations of memory, myth, and place explored through historical narrative, architectural as well as the physical and biological sciences. Through my exploratory research and travel, I often paint pre-memories‚ of adventures before I experience them, investigating the similarities and differences between the pre-memory and the actual experience. The subject matter following my research investigates a wide variety of subjects. Whether swimming with great white sharks or exploring the sub-basements of estate houses of the gilded age, my work always traces back to a universal understanding of the human experience. Through these encounters, I capture the archetypes of the common man and delve into the everyday experience of being human. By combining seemingly disparate subject matter, I come up with unique connections often overlooked.
