Thicket 6, oil on panel, 36 x 36 in.

I am always working with the idea of one image effecting the perception of another. A seemingly innocuous landscape can become "infected" by the proximity of an image depicting catastrophe or decadence. Through repeated shapes, gestures, a shared palette, a set of marks, elements that are not in and of themselves meaningful. As an artist I hope to compel a viewer to look twice.
