My work concerns the duality of the mind’s ability to transform and mirror the physical realities surrounding it. Through imagery, proximity, and reflection, the elements of space, time, and place are modified to transport the viewer into a mental landscape. These biomorphic constructs curate a sense of mystery and are catalysts for bringing out differences in human perceptions. This painting series utilizes collaged maps, recycled cardboard, scrap material from other shaped canvases, and vinyl. The narratives pose questions but give no answers. They remain undeclarative statements for reflection and exploration.
