Painting

I paint in three different styles: Surrealscapes, Character Studies, and Classification Studies. Surrealscapes are landscapes reconceived and populated with a vibrant variety of living and interacting creatures. To fully experience surrealscapes, it helps to clear your mind and meditate on the painting, exploring the ways in which the characters interact, and the dimensions shift as the eye scans each plane. In this way, one can vacation from reality at any time and emerge from surreality renewed and with a new perspective for the day. To aid this, each painting is paired with a poem meant to impart a certain immediacy of feeling, providing another avenue to enter into each painting. Character Studies focus on a single entity and explore them in detail, and as a subset of Character Studies, I have a Classification Studies which explores, often through vivisection, an entity and its relations to this and other worlds.
