Statement

 

Plant shapes, a sun soaked palette, and surreal spaces are used within my work to reflect upon the visual and textural qualities of earth, air, fire, and water. Deeper under the surface, I use these natural items as symbols to ruminate spiritual theories surrounding the human consciousness, spirit, and "planes" of existence outside of the time and space.

  A beet transforming under the earth may represent our physical, resting fetal selves. A root umbilical cord tethering us as we transform. A window may represent a barrier to another world, a realm of spirit and light. I feel an access to something universal when painting these rising and illuminated plants, whom I wish to give a hum all their own.
