I have always been fascinated with images we conjure for the study of nature, science, and the spaces they occupy- the kind we are familiar with in school books. That is to say, relative to the study of micro and macro-universes. In my work, nature is filtered into neat icons that overlap the confines of illustration, even if often unwittingly. My images 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. With this, I seek to generate highly theatrical scenarios wherein different sources converge and interact hopefully with unpredictable results. 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.
