My paintings are visions from the near future, musings on the ruins of a contemporary lifestyle. This world is inhabited by morphologically atavistic animals - reactions, perhaps, to increased pollution or the range of ecological niches vacated by the Sixth Extinction. Most of the people appear ignorant of their changing environs. Their instincts unexamined, they continue to consume.
But there is rather a focus on searchers, vagabonds. Far from aimless, these wanderers have embarked on mythic journeys. They are searchers after the boon of a deeper unification with their human nature.
