My work explores the invisible , and the often hidden patterns that lie behind and are enmeshed within our reality. From our brains to nature to society and the cosmos, these patterns exist at all levels, from the micro to the macrocosm. We are pattern makers and pattern perceivers, whether we are conscious of this or not. These paintings investigate the idea of interconnection as the basis of our universe, our lives and our fundamental identities. We are interrelated and interdependent, and by discovering the patterns that surround us and are embedded within us we can perhaps reconnect and remember our true nature as being holistically and intimately intertwined with one another.
