Most of my art springs from the desire to make something that feels as vast as it does intimate. I gravitate towards dream-like, abstract landscapes as a means of exploring the connection between material and immaterial worlds. Birds that aren’t really birds at all, trees that hang down and transform into pools of water, rocks whose reflections are more real than they are, phantoms that connect your eyes to the plants. In painting such dreamscapes, I hope to capture something of the experience when the supposed boundaries of all things corporeal and intangible vanish."
