The most courageous act today is the separation of the spiritual from the physical.
My work is about reality, Realism in its truest sense. But instead of using Realism as a tool to represent what is plainly in front of me my approach is from the perspective of what we don’t yet know, what we suspect but don’t have the confidence to assert, or it’s about exploring moments of reality so poignant we forget how to express them in the instant they’ve passed.
You have had these experiences. Moments where doubt fades and decision is instantaneous. Instants where thought is more firm than sinew. Fragments of realization, or joy, or creation, or love, or examination, or exhilaration, or, or, or. When you’re in that moment it’s infinite—but then somehow it passes by.
My work is about exploring reality, no doubt. Things that are, without question. Experienced by anyone. But which we still struggle to define, to express, or even to observe.
