The paintings of Nature, Fabric & Collective Memory find conceptual
grounding in the idea that the basic human drive to decorate and adorn
the material world is a fundamentally sacred or devotional one.
Continually deferring and referring back to the language of nature, the
work approaches painting as a vehicle to explore the act of
ornamentation, using natural elements such as trees, flowers, cells, and
alien or marine-like forms. Highly detailed in oil and gold leaf, these
elements function as visual building blocks of elaborate, dreamy, yet
earth-bound realities, foreign yet viscerally familiar places where the
consciousness can dwell and find new perspective.
