Identity, volatility, and dissolution inform the figures in this body of work. They brush against each other in ways that resemble our bad dreams, unconscious powers that inform our waking life. Into these vistas of tension, encounters and conflicts set the stage for meaning. And, as jealous gardeners, we tend this intimate landscape of terrors and manifestations with exquisite instruments of reason.
