Who are we as humans? What comes next on the planet? How as a painter can I express relationships of human and the land, what I unknowingly know. Surrealism, automatism, absurdism, DADA . . . all come into play. Images surprise me with their own plans, and I’m learning to be less willful, to follow intuition towards absurdities and metaphors that express what words cannot. My inquiries are about bonds and intersections between living and non-living beings, trusting the intelligence of memory, dream, irrational choice, and personal experiences of connection, love, and awe for natural habitats.
