A lot of my current work deals with layering, both physical and conceptual. Recently I have been creating shadow box diorama paintings, where all the depths of field are completely separated from one another, but the individual pieces remain 2D paintings. These paintings are a representation of the cycles of nature, the variations of landscapes and life found on this earth, and ultimately the effect human kind and culture has on the environment and sustainability of our world. I am intrigued by the creative unconscious and draw a lot of imagery from my dreams while also relying on intuition, the subconscious mind, and chaos theory for the majority of techniques that I have developed. I’ve found the thoughts that occupy the mind manifest themselves in reality, whether the thinker consciously takes action or not.
