Artist Statement
I aim to create a fictional landscape that envelops the viewer much like a literary work, employing references from diverse sources such as fairy tales, historical decorative arts and theater. These are fictional places gleaned from traditions explored in literature and art that evoke a physical landscape as well as a psychological state. They are sites of personal and collective memories: they map anxiety, confusion, obsessive sorts of love, nostalgia and the tricks our minds play on us. The use of narrative is present but not prescribed. The works themselves refer not only to these literary traditions but also utilize architecture as a metaphor for psychological space. These works, and the longing embodied in them, amplify the way strains of fiction can be gleaned from history and memory (both of the present and the past).
