I have been imagining a time way in the future when a few surviving nomads witness a world in which most man-made structures have disappeared. The world they encounter is unmoored and dangerous, but also awe-inspiring as nature takes back what is hers. I imagine the nomads’ desire to communicate with perceived supernatural forces. As I paint I work from a place of searching for images outside my rational understanding.
In my process I stick by four rules: I can’t rely on source material, I start with monoprints, I need to keep painting until I no longer can recreate the image, and I can’t stop after one run. In the end, I want to be surprised and learn something I didn’t know before.
