Artist Statement My work explores the tension between the natural world and its grasping appropriation by human influence. It draws from traditional genres of painting together with the rusty surrealism of science fiction and the phantasia of abstraction to create a parallel world that seeks to not only question our perception of nature, but paintings' historical and current role in that. Idealized romantic landscapes are held up by increasingly fragile supports, which are pieced together from the debris of spacecraft, industrial structures and painterly remains.
