This collection of paintings experiments aesthetically and conceptually with metaphors of green.
They are a nursery of flora and fauna that are cultivated from observation and reinterpreted into imagination. The space is flat and the figurations exist in neon color fields. This nursery of images explore mutation, global climate change, the sublime, youth and beauty, emotional disaster and protection. I paint my ideas using intuitive compositional processes yielding unconventional results.
The forms are always developing as I trim and shape them like Edward Scissorhands, obsessively layering color only to delete it, finding meaning in the empty space and injecting a strangeness into the atmosphere reflecting the consequences of reality.
