My work is about the transformative opportunity that art can offer to elevate the individual internally and give a respite from the weight of reality. Each painting has no set narrative. I leave it up to the individual to interpret the works, based on their own life experiences. I use repeated geometric forms to describe what cannot be seen without magnification's assistance. In my mind’s eye, I imagine a subatomic world in which mankind has no influence. This world pre-dates us and will be here when we are gone. I find the Higgs-Boson Field theory that everything is connected to resonate with my work. There is no such thing as empty space. Simultaneously I invite the viewer to take a meditative pace. The artwork speaks through a personal interpretation. Physically, I layer the forms to create space. I want to give a place for the viewer to mentally walk around and explore. I use oil paint, often hand-made from pigment, and layer it with resin. People often say they want to walk or swim in my paintings. This is most gratifying.
