Illusory (in progress)  48x24 Acrylic on canvas 

My latest series is entitled Altered Perceptions and it is inspired by the mystery of our individual realities and perceptions found throughout varying levels of consciousness, memories and fragmented thought. The passage of time is also a major theme in my work because I am intrigued by how chronology and space become disoriented in the unconscious mind. Human figures are often depicted as statues holding life-like qualities, expressions, and emotions, and they frequently become the focus of my compositions. Because of this, the lines between the living, inanimate, dreams, and reality blur irrevocably. Architectural structures found in my work also help gauge time due to various styles and levels of dilapidation. I juxtapose old and new structures to reinforce the relentless progression of time.
