I’ve always felt that we walk a border between two opposing worlds, of actuality and the unreal. A border that through the subconscious, memories, and chance, can be momentarily crossed to reveal a new truth. Painting is my attempt to find meaning in this communion of worlds: where dream fades to wake, present fades to memory, and shadows fade unknowable behind closed doors.
I am inspired by magic and minutiae, puns and paradoxes, starry nights and dreams.
