The natural world provides many visual analogies for the great depth and mysteries of the human mind. These paintings illustrate a boundless inner life, amplified by our senses, and its extension in to the world. Fluid topographies, discontinuous scale, and color suggest the expansive and conflicting systems of water and the changing climate as a metaphor for the evolving self. Likewise, these paintings suggest a current and future waterscape effected by climate change. Painting can connect form and idea via a language that is unique to the medium, I try to embrace this possibility in my work.
