In my new work, I explore the beauty of the natural world, both through tangible and transient experiences. Through painting and collage I build, deconstruct, and reassemble new organic images, sometimes with unwitting results. Positive and negative spaces are blurred. I orchestrate my collages perhaps in the same way a gardener or florist arranges his foliage, and moreover, how a topiarist curates every leaf on a branch. But even so, there are unpredictable occurrences that make the work something new for me to desire. I desire to create new images that evoke my experiences of nature and explore the subconscious through abstraction.
