Artist’s Statement: My work is centered around a blurring of time and realities. The figures I paint touch on themes of old mythologies and older magic; the kind of half-truths and false memories that persist through generations. I set out to capture the fear and wonder I feel as I walk through our plane. I try to image other planes and realities that may connect and interact with ours in ways we might not be able to understand. My work is attempt to capture realities that may be lurking just beyond our reach.
