DESCRIPTION

I have always worked in between the realms of the abstract and the figurative. With these paintings, I wanted to show the application and the workings of both on the same plane. Images moving between the abstract and figurative, flipping between the conscious figurative and the subconscious abstract, making a home between the two. A world of mirages and often surreal imagery brought on by this constant movement.
