"My paintings are based on portraying circumstances with naive and imagined notions. The rural subject matter in my work --ultimately so contrary to my life-long personal surroundings--begins to inherit an unearthly, sci-fi feel. The deployment and fluidity of the paint allows the texture to be autonomous, expressing a deliberate but natural amalgamation of worldly entities. Operating within this spectrum of the real and imaginary, my pieces naturally involve the conception of characters and fictions. I am currently attempting to capture the visual phenomenon that naivety allows within the imagination, in order that we may connect opposing objects--whether they are worldly and otherworldly, natural and industrial, or otherwise--which appear so distinctly unrelated to each other, as existing on the same visual plane."
