I try to create metaphors for the conditions of our world. In the quiet of the universe, a Super Nova suddenly explodes into chaotic fragments of various materials flying light years into space. There is a peaceful, beautiful energy in the universe as well as an awe-inspiring unpredictability. There is so much anguish caused by war, poverty, famine, human fragility and endless conflict in the world, it is my desire to paint an unknown, untouched landscape that is still without the influence of human destruction. Using science and how it is interconnected to art is a politically important theme, I am interested in the future of the human race and desire to express a visual representation of a landscape that is still relatively free from human strife.
