I have always been fascinated with images we conjure for the study of nature, of the kind we are familiar with in school books. Nature filtered into neat icons that overlap the confines of illustration, even if often unwittingly. In past and present work, themes of nature, science, and religion are purified into maps, the equivalent of a design for a garden versus an actual garden, and the latter versus a wilderness. It is this process by which we get a handle on abstract concepts. Through my art I seek to generate highly theatrical scenarios wherein different sources converge, interact, or modify hopefully with unpredictable results. Here, I attempt to dream with the images we use to reason out and teach to others the fundamentals of our reality, often pointing out instead the inherent mystery of things at hand.
