I’m fascinated by the workings of the human mind, the functions and dysfunctions that enable us to create, imagine and dream. I want my recent series of paintings to be visual playgrounds for the mind, stimulating curiosity and imagination, like a confounding memory of an obscure but vivid dream. Whimsical, provocative, perhaps slightly unsettling, they are somehow reminiscent of a distant memory or fleeting thought. Allowing my mind to wander unrestricted, I let the subjects in these works drift freely from my thoughts and onto my canvases.
