My work is an exploration of perceptual relationships within the context of an evolving mental landscape. Each piece presents assembled images stemming from a rich library of personal and cultural references, ranging from literature and myth, to personal experiences or travels and paintings centuries old. The images emerge slowly, appearing, disappearing, shifting and transforming, until the right combination manifests itself. Each work becomes a synthesis of elements forming ambiguous relationships within the picture plane. The process is intuitive. The result is a quality texture, representing the creative process itself, revealing what time does to the surface of things.
