I hope to build believable spaces that reshuffle our expectations in a way akin to dreaming or being hypnotized. Gravity can be denied. Straight lines wobble and threaten to bend. I think about the psychology of space, memory, and perception as it relates to a viewer’s reality. The studio acts as a site for experimentation and a point of departure, where perspectival interiors merge with unexpected leaps into remembered or observed phenomena and conventional space mashes with flattened abstraction and stylistic fancy. Feeling more kinship with a stagehand than a storyteller, I leave the final pivotal role of narration to the viewer.
These are stages for unseen painted events.
