I use my art to express ideas of human nature through abstract landscape. Our individual natures and nature in general being expressions and part of one another, the open field lies as the equivalent of our unconscious mind. Materialized by every stratum of shading, color and brushstroke the canvas can also be seen as a representation of complex society and identity, its images and allusions, vibrating, bubbling, splashing, staining, dripping, blending together, straddling confusion and disorder. Before taking shape, at the beginning or middle of mutation, evolution yet to become something more complete, everything begins by the energy and emergence of movement undefined. It builds layer upon layer transcribing a jungle of ideas, conflicts and other motions struggling to fend off opposing forces and one another, until finally provisional cohesion or capture of abstract life form appears. Sometimes transcendent, sometimes rooted in the immediate, this is landscape free of parcels and fallow ground, an experimental place to let thoughts become themselves, free of attachment, restrictions, conditions and rules. A place where ideas and nature and our vision can mix sifting views and associations, where we can make errors unpunished or indulge in fantasy and speculation, to play with metaphors or travel through rhythm and subconscious between possibilities asleep but stirring, to find freedom.
