CULTURAL LANDSCAPES
My work places recognizable and abstract images into dream-like cultural landscapes. It is the displacement, interaction and then connection of the images that pushes the paint. In a modern sense they are algorithms- a road map that tells you how to get from one place to another. Like all maps, it is a rendition - a best attempt at reflecting a current reality, recognizing that the map is not the landscape. The images, patterns and paint are fluid as they form, emerge and disappear into past, present and future.
