My paintings are about implied topography and symbolic signage. The motifs are grounded in and contain the elements of: land, sea, water and sky.
My plexiglas pieces explore a number of ideas that i’m developing around the concept of a frozen moment in time using word and object imagery. I just let the ideas take me where they want to go, whether the words make use of visual puns or veer into more quiet and introspective studies.
I grew up in Alaska. Surrounded by the elements you are aware of how perilous and fragile the human existence is in the wilderness. We have a deep connection to the physical world and I'm interested in depicting that from a dreamlike, removed vantage point. These paintings are about implied topography and symbolic signage. They are about places i've seen and felt, and about places i've imagined. The motifs are grounded in, and contain the elements of land, water and sky.
I currently reside in California and have a studio in Mission district of San Francisco.
