I let my brush take me where it will. In doing the underpainting for this work I was taken to the interior of some impossible monstrous mouth full of twisted, intertwined, sharp teeth. It can be seen as representing a human fear of nature, raw and unconstrained. This work draws on the myth of the vagina dentata, emasculation, the dread about being eaten alive by a cruel and unforgiving world. It is beautiful in its implied terror.

I paint dualities. My art is the study of contrasts, dichotomies. It thrives in the boundaries between light and dark, optimism and nihilism. I work with forces that are both contradicting of and inherent in one another. I manifest these forces in my canvases weaving together symbolism, meaning, and abstraction. With my brush I express both conflict and symbiosis and give form to ideas that defy capture.
