My current series of mixed media on canvas express the metaphorical potential of images and mental states. They represent a relative and curious universe, an arena that invites the discovery and unfolding of imaginative worlds that can reflect opposing forces between humans and the environment. In these works, color, shape, and ironic surprises, set free from their mooring in representation, become vehicles for exploring spatial relationships while serving at the same time as metaphors for the personal, social and technological interactions of contemporary experience. I invite the viewer to enter a world where familiar elements in unfamiliar combinations create a luscious unease.
