ARTIST STATEMENT

Our lives are a journey through a changing landscape. These landscapes become associated with the emotions we experience as we pass through them.  A ship departs at dawn, a car travels on a road at night, a solitary figure contemplates a distant horizon - these are all images that have a resonance beyond the surface narrative, suggesting various emotions such as loss, hope or communion. Some of these associations are so deeply rooted that they have become a comprehensible language.
