About the Work

"The Universe is made of stories, not of atoms."

 

 - Muriel Rukeyser, poet

 

 

My work draws on the mythic, both literally and figuratively, as well as the history of art, the absurd, the impossible, the allegorical and the dream-like.  I am drawn to images that are poetic, open-ended, and suggestive; images that involve the viewer in the act of construction. My paintings explore the concept of emergent narrative, storytelling without the constraints of a specific story; 'fictions'  that acts as modes of transcendence and of 'world-making'. 

 

Such an approach allows me to explore themes of transcience, belonging, nomadicism, adventure, the environment and discovery as well as the fantasctical and absurd nature of human being.
