A Dream World Glimmers In The Background Of The Soul
Select your print and framing options
Growing up with a strong relationship to the natural environment, I developed a heightened awareness of the conflict between human systems and ecological systems. Through my interest in science, theoretical physics, the String Theory work of Brian Greene, evolutionary biology and the work of Charles Darwin and Darwinian geneticist Steve Jones, I have been inspired by the interconnectedness of matter, especially as it is manifested in ecological systems; specifically, systems impacted by humans in non-sustainable ways. At the heart of my work is the continuous human struggle to reconcile the tensions between the natural world, art, science and lived experience. My artwork over the past five years has explored these tensions through paintings and drawings that contrast the kineticism of the natural "living" world with the static "inanimate" depictions of natural history illustration.
