I choose imagery based on the way my body reacts to visual stimulus. I cannot articulate the discomfort I feel at times, so I ask how that discomfort would manifest visually. I often notice patterns, forms and signs in the outside world that seem to capture some unutterable feeling. It might be the way a branch bends to the weight of snow, against a sky electrified by neon. In this fleeting moment exists both the aspiration to be divine and the burden of being human. These are the bittersweet and tender spaces that move me. I want viewers to feel unsettled and explore the painting’s meaning for themselves on an intuitive level.
